When it comes to providing education and career guidance, there's no more valuable resource than highly informed school counselors and educators. At ICE, we're committed to helping you better understand the wide range of career options in the food industry and how a foundation in culinary education can make your students' culinary school dreams a reality.

ICE has a School Counselor Coordinator who connects with a network of over 2,000 professionals in the tri-state area. This dedicated individual will answer your questions about ICE, provide the information to help your students make an informed decision about their future and discuss the key benefits that an ICE education can offer.

You’ve Come to the Right Place

ICE has launched more than 11,000 careers in the food world and produced generations of satisfied parents, culinary arts counselors and families along the way. We couple individualized training with the most extensive career placement services in the field, arranging hands-on externships at the industry's top food establishments and providing professional support to our graduates long after they leave our teaching kitchens. In short, our mission is to help each student find his or her culinary voice.

A Schedule and Curriculum for Every Student

ICE offers comprehensive diploma programs in the Culinary Arts, Pastry & Baking Arts, Culinary Management and Hospitality Management in just six to 13 months. We have convenient morning, afternoon, evening and weekend classes starting each month throughout the calendar year. Our 74,000-square-foot professional facility features small, hands-on classes with attentive, distinguished chef instructors. Students enjoy a global tour of culinary traditions and techniques and access to the highest quality ingredients, sourced from the same purveyors that cater to the NYC’s finest restaurants.

If You Can Make It Here, You Can Make It Anywhere

ICE alumni have won the highest awards and gained national recognition over the past 37 years. After graduation, they are offered the same, if not better jobs than graduates with two- to four-year degrees and a significantly larger debt burden. We hear it time and time again from the industry's top employers: you do not need a four-year degree to begin a successful career in the food world. But don’t take our word for it: see what industry experts have to say about an ICE education. While you’re at it, read The ICE Difference to learn what sets the school apart from the rest.
