CASA Culinary Schools in California

Our California Culinary School locations will help you hone your talent and build skills.

Do you want to pursue a career in the culinary arts as a chef or other culinary professional? There are a number of California culinary schools to choose from, but they can be costly. If you really want to acquire culinary expertise and in-the-industry connections, you don’t have to attend expensive four-year universities or trade schools. In fact, prior to the advent of the culinary arts school, chefs became chefs through a system of apprenticeship in which they advanced in rank as they perfected their cookery skills.

The Chef Apprentice School of the Arts has many locations throughout California, puts you in a real-world kitchen, and offers debt-busting tuition rates so you don’t have to take on massive debt. Our accelerated programs mean you can start your culinary career in a matter of months – not years. Don’t talk yourself out of the life you want to live. Take a look at our locations and take the first step on your journey to a career in the culinary arts.

“Being a product of an apprenticeship (externship) program, I cannot say enough about it and believe it’s the best way to go. On-the-job experience is invaluable. You can’t be a great chef until you’ve done the job for a while in a real kitchen and know the real pressures of the culinary industry.”
