About the Program

The Grayson College Culinary Arts Program combines a solid academic foundation with transformative practical experience at a more value-conscience tuition rate than other culinary programs.

Through a combination of theory and hands-on courses, students will gain the skills and knowledge they need to enter the hospitality industry and elevate their careers in the future. With smaller class sizes and experienced instructors, students get a more personal approach to learning. Students learn in unique environments such as the Six Ninety One Restaurant at Grayson College, a required practicum field experience, and the option of joining the student culinary competition team.

The Culinary Arts associate degree and certificate programs are accredited by the America Culinary Federation Education Foundation accreditation commission.
