Promoting STEM education in Kalamazoo County

Welcome to KAMSC

Welcome to KAMSC, the Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center is a regional enrichment center serving both public and private school districts in the counties of Kalamazoo and St. Joseph.

Our onsite program serves students residing in the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency (KRESA) service area. We also provide professional learning and outreach programs to fulfill our primary mission of enriching the quality of mathematics and science education for all students in Kalamazoo and St. Joseph Counties.

KAMSC was a founding member of the Michigan Math and Science Centers Network and is a founding member of the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools. The Michigan Math and Science Centers Network was a statewide collaboration of over 30 STEM Centers, and was a core element of the system of support for K-12 STEM education in Michigan. While some of these duties have been absorbed by the MiSTEM Network, KAMSC continues to provide high quality STEM opportunities that can reach every child in our state either through direct student services or by providing teacher professional learning.

Students Progress Through Synergy

KAMSC uses Synergy to track and communicate grades and other information.

Please use the Synergy Parent VUE or Synergy Student VUE.

All parents and guardians of returning KAMSC students should have received login information for the Synergy system last year and those logins remain valid. Note, however, that the URLs for accessing the system have changed. Please use the new links with your existing login information.

Parents and guardians of new KAMSC students should received PVUE login information in the first month of school. Those logins will remain valid throughout the student's time at KAMSC.

Students should contact Mr. Cardwell or Mr. Milka if they or their parents are not able to access their Synergy accounts.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

KAMSC follows the Kalamazoo Public Schools schedule for snow days.

If KPS is closed for a snow day, KAMSC is closed.

If KPS is in session during inclement weather, KAMSC is also in session.

Students whose district school is closed for a snow day on a day that KAMSC is open are strongly encouraged to consider safety first when deciding whether or not to attend their KAMSC classes.

If KAMSC weekend activities, including the administration of entrance exams, need to be cancelled due to inclement weather, announcements will be posted on this web site and through radio stations WKZO (590 AM, 96.5 FM), WVFM (106.5 FM), The FAN (1660 AM), The Touch (1560 AM, 95.5 FM), WTVB (1590 AM), and WNWN (98.5 FM), as well as through WMMT TV 3.
