Mission

Our mission: Preparing our students with skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and citizenship.

Principal

Todd Moorhead Welcome to the Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC). We pride ourselves on serving all students in our 18 college and career preparation programs offered at PSSC. Our mission is to prepare each of our attending students for their success in college, a meaningful career and global citizenship. Our dedicated teaching and support staff strongly believe in and support the PSSC mission by knowing each student by name, strength and interest.

We work in partnership with Highline, Federal Way, Tukwila and Tahoma School Districts respectively serving 22 partner high schools daily in our two sessions. Additionally, we have created a 3rd session for after school students looking to experience one of our programs without having difficulty fitting PSSC into their regular school schedule. Please call us if you are interested in exploring the array of opportunities our career and technical education programs have to offer and we can schedule a personalized tour for you.

We have strong relationships with our local businesses, community groups, civic organizations and parents of our students to ensure we are taking a collective approach for student success into and out of their selected PSSC program focus. Please feel free to stop by and visit with us to see how our teachers, support staff and administration team foster student’s growth in preparing for their future endeavors.
Sincerely,

Todd Moorhead
Principal
