About Us

The Leuzinger High School Culinary Careers Academy (CCA) was established in the 2013-2014 school year to address student interest and labor demands. The first state-of-the-art culinary classrooms will be completed for the 2014 fall semester and CCA students will begin Introduction to Culinary Arts. Our academy is supported by community members, business partners, and post-secondary relationships. Above all, it is a small learning community that supports student engagement and future career and college success.

Career Pathways

Food and Hospitality

This pathway prepare students for a wide range of careers in restaurants, hotels, clubs, schools, resorts, hospitals, and institutions. The pathway focuses on key aspects of the industry including sanitation and safe food handling, food and beverage production, nutrition, food service management, and customer service. A self-motivated person might also take these skills and open a catering or food service business.

Food Science, Dietetics, and Nutrition

This pathway focuses on three specializations centered on the science of food and its relationship to the health and well-being of individuals. It involves food from harvesting to consumption. With health concerns related to food and diet that are commonplace in the United States, people with knowledge and skills in food composition and preparation will be in high demand. Jobs which address the special needs of seniors and children are predicted to
experience large growth as our population changes.
