Program overview in 2020

The 2020-2021 academic year has been a wild ride, full of challenges that we needed to adapt to. We started out by offering a hybrid learning system, combining on-site and online learning, which didn’t last for long due to the pandemic forcing us to move to a 100% online educational experience.

In the meantime, we made sure to take all the sanitary measures possible – hand sanitizers next to classrooms, designated paths for moving through the building, social distancing enforced for classroom seats, modern thermometer at the entrance and periodical sanitizing and ventilation of the classrooms.

On the bright side, culinary practical training sessions were done on-site to the best of our abilities, using smaller groups of students. We gave it our best, even though this academic year ended up being an online experience until the end. Having adapted to these situations helped us improve massively and prepare the best experience we can for the 2021-2022 academic year.


On-site classes to resume in September 2021

We strongly believe that by September, all our efforts to create a safe learning environment will pay off - through vaccination we will reach herd immunity and we will be able to see each other again, on campus. And we are continuously fighting for what we BELIEVE in!

Program overview in 2021

Here are some important aspects we care about when it comes to the new academic planning during the COVID-19 situation (learn more):

We believe in human interaction

Technology is great, but nothing can replace the relationships you build by meeting and talking face to face to each another. We all miss the feeling of coming to the academy and seeing it full of people roaming around the halls. Technology will remain a key support element in the education process, but this time, we will use it together, in a co-learning space, where pen and paper is a thing of the past.

We believe in science

One of the most important things we can offer you is safety. Aside from taking all the sanitary measures needed, the majority of our staff members are already vaccinated and the others will soon be. As Bill Nye said - “Science is the key to our future, and if you don’t believe in science, then you’re holding everybody back.”. We do not only encourage students to get vaccinated, but we have a designated staff member who can help them schedule an appointment.

We believe in the future of hospitality

In the past few months, we have worked with our industry partners to find ways in which we can help them recover, while also finding diverse, quality opportunities for our students. We are here for them, as much as we are here for our students. Everyone needs this to happen: employers, students and schools alike. We are all in this industry together!
