Students will explore different fields of the culinary trade in our state-of-the-art facility. By focusing on hands-on training, students prepare for a dynamic, rewarding career in the food service and hospitality industry. Students will be able to apply their skills easily into new careers upon graduation. Courses are intensive, practical and updated regularly to reflect current industry trends. Students receive career-oriented instruction in both classic and modern culinary arts with an emphasis on the skills needed to succeed in the industry and postsecondary education.

A Pope High School Culinary Arts Academy student should have a strong interest in hospitality and tourism related fields. Other important characteristics needed include the ability to work as part of a team, working efficiently, personal cleanliness, self-discipline and initiative.
