TCC and Rogers High Grow Relationship
Tulsa Public Schools and Tulsa Community College move into the next phase of the further development of Will Rogers College High, formerly known as Will Rogers High School. As a result of the Project Schoolhouse district-wide consolidation effort, Rogers High School was closed in May 2011 and reopened in the 2011-12 school year as an early college high school and continues its transformation into a fully-realized college magnet program.
The college magnet program at Will Rogers expanded a pilot program at TCC where 50 Tulsa students attended classes on the TCC Northeast Campus. The students will be earning both high school and college credit.
At Will Rogers, students in 9th-12th grades commit to participation in concurrent courses for college credit so juniors and seniors pursue their high school diplomas at the same time they're getting a two-year associate's degree through TCC. TCC currently has courses at Will Rogers College High but there are some proposed changes for the building to help facilitate a college atmosphere.
