KAMSC charted a new direction for my life. It taught me that although life is hard, a life of learning goes a long way.

Dear Eighth Grade Applicants and Your Parents and Guardians,

The mandatory school closures, effective March 16th, have imposed delays on our review of eighth grader applications for KAMSC's Fall 2020 ninth grade class.  We now have an understanding of how we are going to be able to administer our review process.  We anticipate that notifications of admission, regret, or wait list, originally scheduled for spring break week, will be delayed by two to three weeks, and that this estimate should not extend beyond the end of April. 

Thank you for considering the pull-out program at KAMSC as part of your high education, and for understanding the delays in our admission process dictated by this year's historic circumstances.


Dr. Tanoff, KAMSC Director
Following Governor Whitmer's stay-at-home-order effective Tuesday March 24, the KAMSC office is closed and will remain closed until April 13. 

The KAMSC administrative team remain available during this time via e-mail:

             Dr. Tanoff (KAMSC DIrector) ---

             Ms. Somers (KAMSC Administrative Assistant) ---

             Ms. Sanders (KAMSC Records/Attendance Secretary) ---

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this unique and challenging time in our history.  We are hopeful that we will be able to resume classes as usual on April 13.
Following Governor's Whitmer's school closings and stay-at-home-order, we are postponing, until further notice, the KAMSC Upper Class Entrance Exam, originally scheduled for Thursday March 26. 

While we will seek alternate means of administering our Upper Class Entrance Exam, it is likely that we will not be able administer the exam until some time after April 13.

Please check back on this KAMSC home page for additional information as it may develop.

Parents and guardians of KAMSC students are encouraged to monitor student progress through the Synergy PVUE application.

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

Information on using the Synergy system is available through the "links" link toward the left side of this page. The "Synergy Parent VUE" and "Synergy Student VUE" links may be found toward the top of the "links" page.

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.
