Welcome to SouthGate Educational Center

East Los Angeles College established the South Gate Educational Center in 1997 to better serve a growing student population that lives in the southern part of the college's service district. After several years at a site in Huntington Park, the college acquired a large, modern building on Firestone Blvd., a major transit corridor in the area.

Currently, the facility has 24 classrooms, a computer lab, book store, library and student support services. A wide variety of career and academic courses is offered and many students have successfully transitioned to universities and productive careers from the Center.
