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


 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 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.
