Office of the President

Tony Cornforth, M.S., University of Oklahoma

Longtime OSSM professor Tony Cornforth is OSSM’s third president. He was unanimously elected by the Board of Trustees in January.

Professor Cornforth has a more than 20-year history with OSSM.  An Oklahoma native, Professor Cornforth started his career with OSSM as a math professor at the Ardmore regional center in 2002. He taught at the residential campus in 2004, and in 2007 he moved to Wayne to launch a new regional center. During his 14 years there, 287 students completed the program, and his students achieved greater success on the ACT and AP exams. He also had 17 Oklahoma Academic All-Staters.

“OSSM is the exemplar of science and math education and academic pursuit in Oklahoma,” he said. “Our sacred mission is to provide premier academic opportunities for our talented high school students. We should zealously and relentlessly pursue this mission.”
