Since 1966, OIC has served more than 41,000 adults in education and training programs in Oklahoma County.  The need for OIC programs continues with 30,000 adults in Oklahoma County who do not have a high school diploma.  31% of adults in our state function at basic literacy levels, and 12% function below basic literacy. These statistics result in workers who are unprepared to meet the demands of a changing workforce. OIC programs provide Oklahomans with literacy and education tools that prepare learners to confidently transition to college, career tech, military and the workforce.

Sullivan and established in Oklahoma City by Dr. Charles Atkins in 1966, the OIC of Oklahoma County is an affiliate of OICs of America and OIC International.  The organization’s mission is to inspire and motivate adult learners through academic and career education.
