History[edit]

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. In 1992, the school’s name was changed from Tulsa Vo-Tech to promote the type of career-focused training provided at the school’s campuses.
