New ASTEC Middle and High School

Announcing the New ASTEC Middle and High School
Posted on 05/28/2024

ASTEC Charter Schools is excited to announce the construction of a new middle and high school at the same site as the newly built elementary school at 2600 General Pershing Boulevard. The project begins June 1 with an expected 20 to 22-month completion date. 

The funding for the new construction, a significant milestone for our community, comes from more than 64 million dollars in tax-exempt bonds. The process was extensive and years in the making.

When asked about the project, ASTEC's CEO and founder Dr. Freda Deskin said, "Today is a remarkable day for ASTEC and a proud moment to be a Comet! This day, nearly 25 years in the making, has finally arrived. I am so happy ASTEC scholars will enjoy an environment conducive to learning with light from large windows and state-of-the-art construction and technology."

As the first start-up charter in Oklahoma, ASTEC has leased space from Shepherd (Mall) Center for the past 24 years. 

ASTEC is committed to keeping you informed and involved in this exciting journey. We will post regular updates on the construction progress on the ASTEC website and social media. Stay tuned!
