Welcome to South Gate 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 20 classrooms, a computer lab, book store, library and student support services. A wide variety of academic and career related courses are offered and many students have successfully transitioned to universities and productive careers from the Center.


Supplemental EIR Report is now available, click here for more details.

The South Gate Community respectfully request ELAC South Gate students park in college designated lots rather than street parking. There are three parking lots. One is on the South Gate Educational Center campus and the other two are located on the corner of Calden and Southern.
