The Executive Center for Education and Leadership (ExCEL) advances a model of professional education that is comprehensive, efficient, and transformative.  As an innovative leader in Hispanic Christian higher education since 1926, we seek to improve upon the teaching, learning, delivery, and evaluation of professional competencies across a number of specialized certificate programs.  We know that there is an emerging need for urban, Hispanic, and church ministry for the working professional. Responding to this need provides challenges for traditional educational models but a unique opportunity for ExCEL.

On the intimate and urban campus of LABI College in La Puente, CA, easily accessed from all major Southern California freeway venues, we are pleased to launch the new Executive Center for Education and Leadership (ExCEL) program.  Our new programs will be delivered in six consecutive courses, offered one course at a time, each completed within a one month period (four consecutive Saturdays).  This platform approach will allow for efficient and effective delivery of a professional certificate program within six months while providing a comprehensive yet innovative and efficient learning experience.

ExCEL provides a unique, professional and accelerated adult -focused model of educational delivery designed to enhance and advance an individual’s purpose, mission and career goals one day a week format. Why wait 9, 12, 18 months or more to finish that professional certificate program, when you can ACCELERATE through ExCEL today!


All applicants must have a relationship with Jesus Christ prior to admission. It is strongly recommended that the applicant be a born again Christian for at least one year.
