The Culinary Arts program is designed to provide students with the various skills necessary for employment in the food service industry.


In a modern, fully equipped kitchen laboratory, students receive instruction in commercial cooking, baking, meat preparation, and food service sanitation. In the guest dining area, table setting, service and artistic food displays are practiced.


The classroom studies include pricing, selecting, and purchasing. Sound management and business practices related to this industry are also explored. Students have an opportunity to earn certifications in, ServSafe, ProStart, ManageFirst, OSHA 10, FDRP, and Allergen Awareness.
