Tulsa’s first classical charter school.

Tulsa Classical Academy was founded by a local group of concerned and motivated citizens who formed Classically Formed Inc., an Oklahoma non-profit and 501(c)(3), in 2020 to explore establishing a classical charter school in Oklahoma. The group participated in a competitive application process and was approved by the Barney Charter School Initiative (BCSI) of Hillsdale College and is a Hillsdale College K-12 Member School and will, therefore, use the Hillsdale College K-12 Curriculum. Tulsa Classical Academy is sponsored by Rose State College.
