Culinary School Tuition
Where to attend culinary school is a personal, professional and financial decision. At ICE we believe in the value of our education, offering the same, if not better, connections with the country’s top chefs and culinary employers than other programs that cost two to four times the amount of an ICE education. Culinary school is a personal choice, but you do not need to be saddled with extra debt on the road to a successful career.
You'll quickly learn that the value of an ICE education is extraordinary. Make an informed decision – your culinary education should be practical and affordable, and ICE can help.
