The Shoreline Community College is a community college that focuses on the success of the students and communities through skills empowerment. Located in Shoreline City in Washington, it offers in-campus education as well as online courses to all students. A brainchild of Dr. Ray W. Howard, Shoreline Community College was first established in January 2, 1964. However, it was in 1966 that the construction of the permanent building began and it was opened to more students to take in more enrollees.

Currently, the Shoreline Community College offers more than 30 associate degrees, technical programs and transitional programs thereby ensuring that students will have better edge once they proceed to a four-year college or enter the labor market. The community college offers courses from various disciplines including social sciences, life sciences, engineering, education, languages, arts, economics and education.

Students who have enrolled in Associate of Arts degrees can always proceed to a four-year university by taking advantage of the direct transfer agreement of Shoreline Community College with other schools. The school has agreements with schools like Central Washington University, Evergreen State College, Washington State University,Gonzaga University Seattle University,Heritage College Trinity Lutheran College and Northwest University Whitworth University.
