Director Debbie McCullough of Tulsa Hope Academy provides exceptional, enthusiastic leadership which shines through to the students and staff. The school fills the void lacking in the public school system in which so many students 'fall through the cracks'. Every city in America needs a school like Tulsa Hope Academy where the students are cared about and have a 95 % graduation rate compared to 50% in public schools. I've been honored to be a part of THA!

For the last few years I have been interfacing with Debbie McCullough and Tulsa Hope Academy, by providing them with a wonderful online curriculum resource. I am amazed and so pleased to see how committed and passionate Debbie and her staff are towards their students. Tulsa Hope Academy is a huge blessing to these at-risk students, and I wish them much future success.

I have not experienced their results on an in-person basis, since I live in Colorado. But I have kept up with their progress and it is very impressive.

I have been a supporter of Tulsa Hope Academy since it's inception in 2005. It's founder, Debbie McCullough, began this school in the living room of her home, when she found that public schools do not work hard to retain students who are not high performers academically. She worked with these first students to find out what kind of learners they were and found adaptive certified curriculum to help these students fulfill their credits needed to graduate high school. Her population of students shifted dramatically, so that she now serves primarily underprivileged minority students. I am always delighted with her "success stories", the lives of both male and female students, but I have had the pleasure of personally helping a few of the female students acquire clothes to go to job interviews and to listen and pray with them as they go through rough times on the road to graduation and on into tewch school or college.

Seeing the consistency of the program through troubled economic times. Ms. McCullough stays true to the THA's mission, even though aligning with other partners might ease "the burden." If it takes the focus away from her students, then it won't happen.

Tulsa Hope Academy is most ably and enthusiastically run by Debbie McCullough. The school develops the cognitive skills of its students while also instilling prosocial values and ethics. The school appears to measure its success based on the distance students travel academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually rather than merely applying arbitrary and conflicting governmental standards. Tulsa Hope Academy graduates are literally filled with hope. I commend Ms. McCullough and her staff in doing such substantive work with their charges.
