KEAS Program
Knowledgeable, Engaged, and Aspiring Students Program

The Knowledgeable, Engaged, and Aspiring Students (KEAS) Program was designed in 2015 to provide support to students who have placed into pre-college level coursework at El Camino College. Our program understands the importance of building strong foundations in Math and English as students prepare to take transferable courses. Under the Student Equity Program, we combine learning communities and dedicated instructors with support services outside of the classroom. The KEAS staff, faculty, and counselors are committed to providing equitable support services to reduce the academic achievement gap and increase persistence rates among our college community. 

The KEAS Program benefits include: 

  • Priority KEAS Class Registration
  • Counseling by appointment and drop-in
  • Academic Advising Support
  • Workshops/Strategies for College Success
  • Linked Learning Community Activities
  • Access to the KEAS Study Lounge
  • KEAS Computer Lab and Printing
  • Math and English Tutoring
  • Free book loans for KEAS classes (subject to availability)
  • Free calculator loans for KEAS classes
