Where We Serve: LA East

LA East

The presence of ACE in Los Angeles is split between two communities, LA East and LA South Central. This community, LA East, is based in Bellflower, CA, about a 20-30 minute drive (factoring in LA traffic) from the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The city provides ACE teachers with ample opportunities to reach out to a diverse student population, many of whom are practicing Catholics.
