CASA Culinary Schools in Atlanta, GA

The CASA Culinary School in Atlanta

Atlanta is a fantastic city to start a career in the culinary arts, but where do you begin? There are many options to learn the craft, and an increasing number of restaurants looking for line cooks and chefs. So doesn’t it make sense to find a school that gives you all the skills you need, and the real-world experience restaurants look for, so you can start your career right away? The Atlanta Culinary Apprentice School of the Arts does just that.

What sets the CASA culinary arts program apart from many other Atlanta culinary schools is that we place you with a professional chef in their real-world kitchen where you’ll get one-on-one attention throughout the program. After many hours of work in the kitchen, at-home preparation of nearly 80 recipes, and completing a final presentation that documents your efforts, you’ll be placed in a live restaurant environment to put what you’ve learned into practice.

CASA Mentors Are Here to Help You Succeed

This is a great time to pursue a career as a chef or cook in the restaurant industry, and no one knows that better than our mentors. They, and their colleagues, see a shortage of competent kitchen staff industry-wide and are determined to help fill those gaps–even in their own kitchen. This is why our program is so successful: We have an incredible job placement rate for those who finish the program.

Most of our students find work in the kitchens of their mentors, or at other restaurants based on their mentor’s recommendation. Our students are in demand because CASA teaches you how kitchens operate in the real world and gives you the experience to step into almost any situation. Now is the time to start living the life you want to live. Get started working towards a career in the culinary arts.

While classes are essential for building a foundation of culinary knowledge, there’s no substitution for real-world experience. That’s why having a mentor in the industry can be invaluable. A mentor is someone who can take you beyond the classroom and show you the inner workings of a professional kitchen. They’ll teach you not just the techniques, but also how to handle the pressure during busy dinner rushes and the ins and outs of running a successful restaurant.

This immersive, one-on-one Chef Program experience is unlike anything else out there. Over the course of six months, you’ll receive the most comprehensive culinary education available, with a focus on the skills you’ll need to succeed.

We can’t promise there will be a job waiting for you when you’re done with CASA, but we do offer one full year of job placement assistance to all our students. Our connections in the industry allow us to connect you with opportunities in the real world. That being said, many of our students go on to find work through connections made in our program, such as their mentor or another kitchen, thanks to solid recommendations.

Start your culinary journey and become the chef you’ve dreamed of!

You will be mentored by an expert chef and gain real-world experience in an actual kitchen. Professional chefs have never been in such high demand and our job placement is unmatched in the industry.
