FHS Culinary Arts Program Featured in National Geographic
Something wonderful is cooking over at Freehold High School. The school’s Culinary Arts/Hospitality Management Academy was featured in National Geographic for its unique comprehensive program. The Culinary Arts Academy is a four-year program of study that consists of a wide range of courses, training, experiences, and activities in culinary, hospitality management, and food science.
Traditional course work is enhanced by relevant action research projects with the opportunity for “hands on” professional skill development through all operational phases of a fully licensed restaurant, the Five Star Café. College degree or placement credit, in the culinary content area, may be earned through high school course work tied to an articulation agreement with The Culinary Institute of America. Students in the program are prepared and have the opportunity to take safety and sanitation certification tests that are nationally recognized by the National Restaurant Association’s ServSafe.
