The Culinary Arts Program at Clifford Academy

The goal of our Culinary Arts program is to develop transferable workplace skills as well as specific practical skills. Students can enter the workforce and continue their education as life-long learners. Students are trained in cooking, baking, restaurant service, and management in an on-site cafeteria. They will be exposed to real world hospitality situations.

Projects assigned include:

  • menu development,
  • job scheduling,
  • catering,
  • function management,
  • inventory,
  • teamwork building,
  • and cash management.

The Culinary Arts program combines hands-on learning with classroom-based skills training. The Culinary Arts program develops a professional foundation in the work habits, techniques, and attitude necessary to obtain and retain entry-level position in the food service industry. Students are prepared for all phases of the food service industry including short order cook or server.
