Last Chance to Register for ACA Spring Classes

January 8, 2008

There is still time to register for spring culinary classes at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College, which prepares students for exciting careers in the food industry, from caterers to personal chefs to restaurant managers.  The Academy is accepting applications for the spring semester, which begins Tuesday, Jan. 22, at its Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.

The ACA offers two-year degree programs in Culinary Arts, Food Service Management and Baking and Pastry. Full-time classes meet five hours a day, Monday through Friday, in a morning or afternoon session from August through December and January to May. Full-time students not pursuing a degree can complete the requirements for a culinary certificate in three semesters. Part-time and evening classes are available.

The ACA also offers four short-term specialization programs. Baking and Pastry, Hot Food, Catering and Food Service Management certificates can be earned in just nine months-an ideal situation for industry professionals who want to strengthen their skills or for food enthusiasts interested in satisfying their culinary curiosity.

The Academy offers personalized, high-quality training at a low cost. Financial aid, grants, scholarships and loans are also available.

The ACA has been training future chefs since 1981. For more information on the Academy, call 1-800-645‑CHEF, e-mail, or visit
