At home I could not have received the level of academic support or the caliber of college counseling I receive at OSSM. Living at OSSM taught me I can volunteer more, learn more, work more, and achieve more than I ever thought possible. A million thanks to all who make it possible for students like me to take advantage of the biggest opportunity Oklahoma has to offer.
Jake B., OSSM Class of 2017 (Enid, Chisholm H.S.)
At OSSM I have developed many skills that surpass college preparedness and qualify as life skills. Living and learning with some of the brightest students. faculty, and staff in the nation is an honor and has enabled me to gain so much knowledge. I expect to build on that knowledge exponentially!
Jeremiah Y., OSSM Class of 2017 (Yukon H.S.)
My first year at OSSM improved my time management skills greatly. It also improved my work ethic and has advanced my academic career much more than a regular high school would.
Katie L., OSSM Class of 2017 (Harrah, Choctaw H.S.)
OSSM is an experience that breaks me down, but builds me up. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and exposed my weaknesses. But it gave me the environment to motivate myself in any given challenge and grow stronger along with the rest of our community.
Bella N., OSSM Class of 2018 (Lone Grove, Plainview H.S.)
OSSM has not only facilitated my aspirations in an academic setting, but it has allowed me to explore the realm of opportunities outside a student’s traditional comfort zone.
Ritvik G., OSSM Class of 2017 (Tulsa, Union H.S.)
OSSM has taught me how to push myself and has made me a better person overall–It heightened every area/aspect of my life! The faculty and administration here have put forth tremendous effort to provide me and my classmates such high quality education. For that I am forever grateful.
Abel Z., OSSM Class of 2017 (Oklahoma City, Mustang H.S.)
OSSM has opened up so many new doors to me and has given me the chance to meet new people and explore the person I want to be. This place is unlike any other and it is overall amazing to be here.
Jax T., OSSM Class of 2019 (Ramona, Caney Valley H.S.)
Coming from rural Oklahoma, my ambition to be an aerospace engineer didn’t draw out many peers or mentors from my community. Besides the academic growth that came from attending, OSSM impacted me by helping me grow extensive peer and professional networks, which have since led to several exclusive opportunities. Since graduating in Spring 2018, I have completed two summer internships with The Boeing Co. and written a proposal accepted by NASA.
Braxton B., OSSM Class of 2018 (Woodward H.S.)
OSSM is a mix of the most challenging experience I have ever had, and the most rewarding at the same time. I have learned so much so far, and I have gained friends I would have never gained anywhere else!
Jonathan Y., OSSM Class of 2019 (Hugo H.S.)
My experience at OSSM has opened me up to not only amazing opportunities, but amazing friendships. I also was able to appreciate my culture and heritage while getting to know other cultures throughout the school!
