Find all the basics here. A comprehensive look into how Tulsa Tech impacts our community, what we’ve achieved, and where we hope to grow.
A public independent school district, as well as the oldest and largest technology center in Oklahoma’s Career Tech System, Tulsa Tech was founded in 1965 as part of Tulsa Public Schools. Tulsa Tech purchased its single campus (now the Lemley Campus) from Tulsa Public Schools and became an independent school district in 1973.
Tulsa Tech offers a wide range of opportunities to prepare students for success in a career. With six campuses in the Tulsa metro area, a Tulsa Tech campus is never too far away.
Students can choose from a variety of programs including health sciences, aerospace, pre-engineering, automotive/alternative fuels and information technology. Tuition is free for public, private and home-schooled high school students with low-cost tuition for adult learners. Morning, afternoon, evening and all-day classes are available to fit any student’s schedule.
Tulsa Tech also offers hundreds of part-time classes that allows students to pursue their individual career goals or simply explore a variety of interests, while fitting anyone’s busy schedule. Whether a student wants to learn additional computer skills to stay competitive in the workforce or is finally taking time to learn a new artistic endeavor, Tulsa Tech can help.
Tulsa Tech believes in providing students with resources for work-based experience and placement — resources that are critical for making the transition from the classroom to the workplace. Students who successfully complete training are referred to available and appropriate employers in their field.
Tulsa Tech builds partnerships with businesses and industry in the Tulsa area that create opportunities for student placement and work-based experience. Career advisement is also available for middle school, high school students and adults in the Tulsa area.
A strong component within the values of Tulsa Tech as a district is the importance of service in our community, it’s a huge part of what we do!
As a district, Tulsa Tech continually stresses the importance of “giving back” to those in need across the region and intertwine professional skills, core curriculum and service through faculty, staff and students efforts.
