Culinary arts is a three year program in which the students will progress from the fundamentals of food service, to actual hands-on activities involved in the daily operation of our forty seat, student run restaurant, The American Bounty Cafe. Through our three year curricula, we create the opportunity for our students to acquire skills and knowledge they need to build successful careers in the ever-changing food service and hospitality industry. During the second semester of the students third year, they are afforded the opportunity of participating in the Career to Work program. The students have the opportunity to work at one of our approved work sites along side industry chefs, giving them an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge learned in class, and broaden their educational experiences. Tech Prep affiliations with Atlantic Community College and Johnson & Wales University enables the students to earn college credits while in high school.
