Beighley added: "Innovative, rigorous, experiential learning is a critical component of our culinary academy and it is the foundation of our student success. Students who graduate from this nationally recognized Culinary Arts program, accredited through the American Culinary Federation Accrediting Commission, will have an outstanding foundation of theoretical and practical cooking experience on which to pursue a career in the foodservice industry.
