        Puget Sound Community School Mission Statement:
The mission of the Puget Sound Community School is to honor the uniqueness
of students by trusting their natural abilities, respecting them as
individuals, and providing them educational opportunities in which equal
status is given to all pursuits. We invite the participation of all people
regardless of race, gender, ability, or sexual orientation. PSCS is
dedicated to being a leading example of community-involved education.

        Apprenticeship Program Description:
The purpose of the Apprenticeship Program is to match our students with
adults in the community who are pursuing professions or activities in
which the students have strong interest. In such a setting, the
apprentices develop an appreciation for the unique skills and disciplines
employed by their mentors, are afforded the opportunity to practice and
develop some of these skills, build a personal sense of usefulness and
worth by helping their mentors, as well as gain the experience of sampling
a variety of professions. The mentors, in turn, have the satisfaction of
knowing that they have provided the students with not only unique learning
experiences, but expert guidance that could help chart their futures.
