Academy of Culinary Arts

chefs learning to harvest gardenThe Academy of Culinary Arts is an ideal place to prepare for your future in the culinary industry. We educate more culinary students each year than any other New Jersey culinary school. But we're still small enough to know your name and care about your success. Our tradition of providing superior culinary students has grown to a substantial network of ACA alumni around the world.

 At the ACA, you can work toward a degree, take specialized courses, or just develop basic job skills. We offer accredited degree programs and certificate programs that you can take on a full- or part-time basis. All programs are designed to prepare you for the real-world challenges of the food and beverage industry.

Did you know? At the Academy, learning isn't just confined to a classroom. We have an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven and our own Organic Greenhouse and herb garden.
