OSSM helped me to realize my potential and provided me with the confidence to achieve more than I could have imagined.
Capt. James Dunlap, M.D., Surgeon, OSSM Class of 1994 (Lexington H.S.)
At OSSM, I learned leadership and responsibility. Gaining knowledge went from a task that ought to be done to a joy that shapes who I am and who I may become.
Rev. Sara Dillard Bodenstein, OSSM Class of 1994 (Weatherford H.S.), Mathematics Professor at OSSM
My hope for OSSM is that they continue to draw the rich talent Oklahoma supplies and turn those students into the leaders of academia and the global economy for the next generation.

OSSM changes you in a way that you don’t initially see or realize. It’s only now, looking back on where I am and where I could have been, that I can see how my time at OSSM changed my life completely. OSSM challenged me academically, physically, and psychologically, bringing me experiences and opportunities that I could never have even imagined. These experiences are priceless to me; I would not trade them for the world.
Kai V., OSSM Class of 2022 (Moore H.S.)
OSSM provides unique education opportunities for students who are seeking to challenge themselves. By inspiring a high level of excellence, OSSM helps students to flourish in whichever field they wish to enter.
Pooja V., OSSM Class of 2019 (Lawton Academy of Arts & Science)
Attending OSSM has given me a support group in the form of fellow students turned family. The small class size, amiable environment, and awesome faculty has set the bar that all future education will be measured against.
Angela Z., OSSM Class of 2017 (Norman H.S.)
OSSM has challenged me to not only learn more about math and science, but also about myself. I feel so lucky to live with so many amazing people with inspiring goals and ambitions. I’ve grown so much here and am so excited to see the impact this school will have on me even after I graduate.
Serena J., OSSM Class of 2020 (Pawhuska, Bartlesville HS)
OSSM has changed my life. I have learned so much, met so many amazing people, and had many opportunities. The heavy course load has shown me that I can accomplish anything, no matter how hard it seems. I have met a lot of people that have similar ambitions as me and we have grown together throughout our time at OSSM.
Parker S., OSSM Class of 2022 (Madill H.S.)
I learned the value of true friendship and to be more accepting of my own imperfection (such as grades) because in the end we all learn from our faults and flaws and can always improve. OSSM certainly has given me a first, real experience of hard work — There is no time or space for procrastination!
Jackie O., OSSM Class of 2017 (Edmond, Bishop McGuinness H.S.)
OSSM has changed my life because it challenged me academically as student. Growing up, I wasn’t the smartest nor the best at academics, but I enjoy a good challenge because it conditions my commitment and perseverance. In addition, OSSM gave me close relationship with other like-minded individuals, living and learning with each other.
