Atlas School was formed to train software engineers in Tulsa.

By using innovative approaches and methodologies in a non-traditional educational environment, we emphasize the value of diverse skills.

Our Mission

Atlas School’s mission is to prepare students for entry-level positions in technology fields through education and hands-on training to positively impact their lives, communities, and workplaces.

We chose the name Atlas School to signify the importance of helping students find their path to a career in tech. An atlas does not tell you where to go, but it shows you how to get there. In the same way, our hands-on educational framework equips our students with the tools they need and the knowledge on how to use them. We teach students the technical skills to succeed in their field, the essential skills to get them noticed in interviews and throughout their careers, and the practical experience that prepares them for real-world work environments.

Our Campus

Atlas School is a standalone building located in the Arts District of Tulsa, OK. The building was designed with exposed brick, representing the historical architecture of Tulsa.

The school is approximately 9000 square feet and boasts 6 peer learning rooms, 2 meeting rooms, a conference room, a resource center, an event space, a kitchen, a lounge, and a separate rest area.

The annex is located directly behind the school and is approximately 17,000 square feet. The space includes 12 peer learning rooms, 7 meeting rooms, a large kitchen, a locker area, 6 phone booths, additional lounge spaces, an open student workspace that seats 118 people, and a patio with sweeping views of downtown Tulsa, OK.

Our History

In 2020, our campus opened in partnership with Holberton School and the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF), launching new programs with commencement in early 2021.

In summer 2022, GKFF became the sole owner of Holberton School Tulsa. This transition signified our school’s commitment to investing in our local community, training a workforce for the ever-changing needs of the tech industry.

Soon after, we determined the best way to serve our city was creating our own identity as a Tulsa-based and Tulsa-focused institution independent from the Holberton network. In January 2024, after graduating over 100 students, we became Atlas School.

Atlas School Forges a Path for Tulsa

The technology industry is an enormous source of employment opportunities for skilled individuals, especially as the specialization of fields within computer science continues to grow. This provides opportunities in established and developing fields as technology continues to transform the way we communicate, interpret data, and conduct business.

Atlas School is training future tech workers to fill this expanding industry and support the growth of Tulsa’s workforce.
