Welcome to Korean Education Center in Los Angeles!
Korean Education Center in Los Angeles (KECLA) is an organization established by the Korean government to support Korean Americans' national pride and identity by educating the Korean language, culture, and history to young Korean Americans living in Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. Also, KECLA's essential mission is to support Korean language and culture education in local schools.
KECLA, established in 1980 at the Consulate General in Los Angeles, expanded to the current facility with the support of the Korean government and the local Korean American community in 2002, allowing it to engage in various projects actively. Above all, the support for Korean language and culture classes in public and language schools, Korean heritage programs and cultural experience programs, adult's lifelong education programs, Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK), and support for TaLK and government-sponsored international students have grown steadily in both quantity and quality.
We will continue to do our best to promote and educate the beauty of Korea in American schools and other educational institutions while serving as a space for learning, communication, and cooperation for the Korean American community. We ask for your continued support, encouragement, and participation.
President of Korean Education Center in Los Angeles
