The Educational Cultural Complex (ECC) has been serving students and community in San Diego's Mountain View community for 40 years. ECC is the largest of San Diego Continuing Education's six adult education campuses in San Diego.

In May 1976, ECC opened and was serving students in programs such as auto mechanics, graphic reproduction, electronic assembly, clothing and textiles and office skills labs. The original goal of ECC was to provide the resources and assist adults to achieve skills in areas that would lead to jobs. Since 1976, ECC offers short-term job training in career technical areas; hosted performing arts shows to well-known dignitaries and stars such as Jesse Jackson and Stevie Wonder; and has a strong relationship with Beckworth Library who serves the students at ECC.

In 2008, college degrees became available at ECC through San Diego City College. Student attend classes at ECC to complete an AA degree in areas such as child development.
