Welcome Bishop Kelley Alumni

Bishop Kelley graduates, former faculty and staff, and parents of alumni—Welcome!

More than 9,000 alumni represent Bishop Kelley in communities locally and abroad. Our graduates are college students, professionals in numerous industries, religious, business owners, doctors, and nurses. They volunteer, serve and educate. When students graduate from Bishop Kelley, they are ready to lead good lives.

Our Tulsa Area Alumni meet regularly at a variety of events. Read below for the April Alumni Newsletter...

Dear Bishop Kelley Alumni,

Spring has sprung on the Bishop Kelley campus, and the Class of 2015 is only 2 months away from Graduation! When their class graduates, Bishop Kelley will have over 10,000 alumni. We are excited for this landmark event!

On Saturday, April 11th, the campus will be rocking with Kelley Palooza, Bishop Kelley’s 35th Annual Auction. This year’s auction will raise money for tuition assistance and the replacement of our well-worn gym floors. Individual reservations for the event can be made here. If you can’t make it in person, you can still support the auction efforts through BKBay, the online portion of the auction with over 350 fabulous items. BKBay opened Monday, March 30th, and closes Sunday, April 12th, at 9:00 p.m. Go here to shop for: OU Football tickets, restaurant gift certificates, tickets to BOK Center events, and much more!
