The Advanced Science and Technology Education Charter (ASTEC) Schools became Oklahoma’s first start-up charter school in 2000, founded by Dr. Freda Deskin. The school began with just 100 middle school student scholars and quickly grew to include a high school with a combined enrollment of 950 scholars, plus a waiting list of several hundred.

ASTEC is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) school in which student scholars have technology as a core subject everyday in engaging

classrooms where the liberal arts are fully integrated. In addition to these core subjects, ASTEC values character, manners, proper etiquette, social and cultural awareness, a strong work ethic and entrepreneurship. Learn more about ASTEC here.
