Graduate Profiles

Our community and our culture allows students to step into a new future now, as empowered, inspired, confident, self-expression leaders. Not everyone here wants to be a pro chef as a career. All of our students are Main Characters. Here are a few of their stories.

I loved the evening programs. Going to all of the fun places that I have been dreaming about for a long time and finally doing it was great.

What is Summer Culinary?

Summer Culinary is the nation’s best culinary summer program for students 12-17. Our program is committed to powerful, safe and fun culinary instruction in pro commercial kitchens and pro chefs in some of America’s best culinary hotspots.

While experience is suggested, it is not required. Our biggest requirement is a love of food, and a desire to learn the culinary arts! We have had true novices in our program, and we have had students go on to win cooking shows on TV.
