For potential applicants just completing the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade . . .
As of June 18, our “upper class” application process is still being developed.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to review our options during this pandemic year.  We expect to update this web site with application information as it becomes available, within the next two weeks.
Rising 9th grade applicants:
We apologize for the delay in being able to process applications this year in a more timely fashion.  We now know that we will be able to send out our letters of acceptance in the second half of July.  Thank you for your continued patience.
Contrary to plans that were suggested earlier, KAMSC will not be asking students to respond to a writing prompt through a synchronous Zoom session, this year.  The evaluation of eighth grade student applications will be based on the criteria described below as a “complete application packet,” namely, parts A, B, and C, of the application, recommendation forms submitted by three eighth grade teachers, and the guidance counselor report.
If you have questions about completing your application . . .
kindly contact the KAMSC office at 269-337-0004 or kamsc.office@kamsc.k12.mi.us .

A KAMSC Open House (via Zoom), for all current eighth graders (and their families) interested in applying to KAMSC to join the program as ninth graders in the fall of this year, was held on Wednesday evening April 28th.  Here is the slide presentation from the Open House.  The recording of the Open House (just over an hour in length), including questions and answers, may be viewed here.
An “Admissions Breakfast Without Food” Zoom meeting was held on Wednesday morning April 21 for all interested eighth grade guidance counselors, administrators, and mathematics, science, and English teachers, to review this year’s KAMSC admissions process and how it may look different from the perspective of teachers and counselors.  Please contact the KAMSC office for more information.
