El Camino College is a two-year public community college located partially in the unincorporated area of Alondra Park and partially in the City of Torrance in Los Angeles County, California, United States. It is commonly referred to as "Elco" or "ECC". It consists of 37 buildings spanning an area of roughly 26 acres (11 ha).

The El Camino Community College District was officially established as of July 1, 1947. Today the college serves nearly 23,000 students of a diverse background within the El Camino Community College District, including the cities of El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Lawndale, Hawthorne, Lennox, and Inglewood. El Camino College offers nearly 2,500 different classes offered in some 85 different programs, including vocational, undergraduate, and honors courses, many available in online and televised formats for distance education.

El Camino is known[who?] for its large program in English as a Second Language (ESL) which emphasizes a strong academic approach to prepare students for college-level work in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. El Camino's forensics program has won awards on a national level for a number of years, occasionally beating 4-year universities such as Notre Dame and UCLA.
