ELAC Southeast Campus

We Have Moved Temporarily to South Gate HS and Odyssey HS

We're thrilled to share some exciting news about the future of East Los Angeles College! As we gear up for the grand opening of our state-of-the-art campus in the summer of 2025, we're embarking on a transition journey that promises to bring even more convenience and opportunities to our students.

Starting in June 2024, we'll bid farewell to our beloved ELAC South Gate Educational Center in South Gate as we pave the way for our future home just down the street. While the new campus takes shape, we're committed to ensuring a seamless transition for all our students.

Note that in the class schedule classes at South Gate High School will be listed as SGHS followed by the room number (i.e. SGHSB24 is South Gate High School Bungelow 24). Classes at Odyssey High School will be listed as ODYSHS followed by the room number (i.e. ODYSHS202 is Odyssey High School room 202)
