Welcome to Seattle Skills Center

Delivering advanced career and technical education programs to Seattle students.

Your Future Starts... NOW!

The Seattle Skills Center is committed to delivering advanced career and technical education for high school juniors and seniors. Courses offer high school credit, industry recognized certification, advanced learning, and college credit.

Programs are distributed throughout the city, not in a single building or location.  Seattle Skills Center programs are located within Seattle Public Schools' high schools and community-based sites.

Each program offers one- and two- year course offerings. A student that completes one year with the skills centers earns 3 full high school graduation credits. Several programs offer math and lab science graduation requirements as well.

These courses are driven by market demand, so Seattle Skills Center students are motivated to enter the workforce AND prepare for college and careers.


Are there any prerequisites to get into the Skills Center Programs?

Many programs have a prerequisite to enter. If you have not yet met the prerequisite, please call to schedule an interview with the instructor.


Seattle Skills Center Mission: Every student, every classroom, every day at the skills center is fully engaged in academic and hands-on learning, working toward their future.
