In August, Tulsa Honor Academy (THA) started its second year of school as a part of Tulsa Public Schools (TPS). It was one of three charter schools approved by TPS in 2014. Most of the students who attend THA are Hispanic.
Each year, students are chosen through a lottery and siblings of current students are given preference. THA promises to prepare students “for the rigors of high school, college and beyond.” THA is partially funded by TPS, but the majority of funding comes from donations.
Currently, THA includes 5th and 6th grades, but will eventually add on 7th and 8th.
