At Tulsa Term, cohorts comprised of juniors and seniors from participating Tulsa Public Schools and Holland Hall will use academic skills and experience to encounter the places and people of Tulsa, face real problems, create solutions, and make a difference in the city. Tulsa Term credits on a transcript stand for true engagement in our world.
