Culinary Arts Tech Prep

The Culinary Arts Tech Prep/College in the High School program enables high school seniors to earn up to 11 credit hours through Schenectady County Community College (SCCC), 15 credit hours through Johnson & Wales University transferable from SCCC, and certification through the American Culinary Federation (ACF) ACCESS program.

Students who take Culinary Arts & Hospitality Technology as juniors may move up to Tech Prep/College In The High School as seniors, or seniors may enroll in Culinary Arts Tech Prep/CITHS as a one-year, stand-alone course.

Learning takes place on campus in the classroom and professional kitchen, dining room and Cafe Anders, a student-run restaurant that is open to the public. Culinary Arts Tech Prep students participate in a 10-week internship and in a variety of public service events and culinary skills competitions. Students also may test for the National Restaurant Associations ServSafe Sanitation certification.

Students may compete for scholarships at several colleges and universities. A number of students from both campuses earn such awards each year and gain valuable financial assistance for college.

The Culinary Arts & Hospitality programs at the Albany campus are certified by the American Culinary Federation (ACF) as ACF ACCESS programs. Faculty are ACF Certified Executive Chefs (CECs) and Certified Chef Educators (CCEs). Career & Tech is an ACF Blue Ribbon ACCESS School.
