Skills Centers are part of the Washington State K-12 education system. As Washington moves forward with the 24 credit graduation requirement and personalized pathways for all students, it is important that students have multiple opportunities to meet their personalized pathway for graduation.

Skills centers play a role in helping students meet those personalized pathway requirements, providing advanced career and technical education opportunities. Students must be concurrently enrolled in their home high school and the skills center.

Funding for skills centers comes directly from state funding and grants.
