Pierce County Strong is regional high school to college partnership committed to improving postsecondary readiness, enrollment and completion through improvements in communication, data sharing and systems coordination.

With a focus on strengthening regional support for students of color and low-income students, we seek to close the postsecondary opportunity gap for students who have been historically underserved in public education.

Since 2016, Pierce County Strong has achieved several significant accomplishments. During 2018, PSCCN sought feedback from K–12 and college leadership about the priorities for Pierce County Strong in order to develop a work plan of regular events and touch points that align with current priorities in the region. We are in the process of updating associated measures of progress.
