The goal of the KU Science Academy is to challenge and prepare science-minded students for a career in science by providing hands-on, real-world internship experiences as well as rigorous courses focused to the student's interests. We believe that exposure of interested students to real-world science and math experiences is of paramount importance. The academy offers fives pathways: Environmental Science, Medical Science, Technology, General Science, and Math. Academy students will choose an interest pathway and complete four credits within the pathway. Klamath Union staff will coordinate field experiences and internships with a variety of local organizations, businesses, and agencies to provide Academy students experiences within their chosen pathways. These field experiences and internships will form the basis of the senior project. Science and Math Academy students will have the opportunity to gain dual credit in each pathway to help jump-start their college transition. Students who earn nine dual credits through Oregon Tech will qualify for up to $9500 in scholarships.

  • Co-curricular internships between sophomore and senior year

  • Ability to finish the senior project early

  • Graduate with dual college credits from Oregon Tech and Klamath Community College

  • Qualify for up to $9500 in scholarships to Oregon Tech
