The start of this school was more selfish than anything. One of the principals guiding Oak Cliff Technology, calls us to improve our knowledge of a subject by changing the lens we use to look at that subject. Learning the course work itself is challenging. Knowing the course work well enough to teach it, is an even greater challenge. We will continue to meet this challenge, if only to further our own knowledge.

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.

Bertrand Russell

Founded on the American Ideal that truly great things can come from a free society. We came to recognize the source of the greatest number of those ideas could be found in melting pots of ingenuity, desire and will power. Where ideas are born and shaped by diverse cultures and experiences. With those criteria, we set out to find our deepest reservoirs. In analyzing the community of Dallas/Fort Worth we realized that not only did we see the tremendous untapped potential in our closest circle, but that much of South Dallas and Oak Cliff lacked a technology community. Combined with its diverse culture, Oak Cliff quickly became our place to start. To be clear, our online courses are available to anyone with an internet connection and a desire to learn. We want to reach out and make our course available to any community where ideas in technology are seeking expression. We just got our inspiration from our beloved Oak Cliff.
