    Welcome to Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC). We serve students in 18 college and career preparation programs. Our mission is to prepare each of our students for 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, serving 22 partner high schools in two daily sessions. Additionally, we have created a third session for after-school students who want to experience one of our programs outside their regular school schedule. Please call us if you are interested in exploring the opportunities our career and technical education programs have to offer. We can schedule a personalized tour for you.
