All we do at SPSCC moves our community forward to complete our mission: amplify student success.

A top 10 best community college, SPSCC serves about 4,000 students each year. We serve people from all backgrounds to come as they are and we connect them to Pathways and classes to reach their goals. We see thousands of students each year land a new job, learn a new skill, earn a degree, or transfer to a university from our campuses in Olympia and Lacey and classes in Yelm and online.

Our core themes are the heart of our work, completed by dedicated staff and faculty, and we have been serving the city of Olympia and its surrounding communities for more than sixty years. SPSCC makes significant impact on the Thurston County economy and has been named a top 10 community college in the U.S. by Aspen Institute College Excellence Program. The college has also been named a College Choice top 50 college and Aspen Institute top 150 college many times over the last decade.
