LASC Campuses

Live, Learn, Let Loose

LASC has three campuses across sunny Southern California. Our locations are just minutes away from some of California's most popular tourist attractions and situated in areas that offer plenty of amenities, as well as ample housing and entertainment options. Learn how to surf at Huntington Beach, the surf capital of the world. Take a trip to Disneyland, shop on Rodeo Drive, walk the stars on Hollywood Boulevard or cruise down Pacific Coast Highway to take in the sights. At LASC we strongly encourage our students to leave the four walls of our classrooms and go out to experience all that California has to offer. Our aim is to employ our students with the language skills they need to operate and interact with the world around them. So, what are you waiting for? Let's start exploring!
