Encourage Your Students' Culinary Career Goals
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 thousands of professionals in the state of California. 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 16,000 careers in the food and hospitality industries. We couple individualized training with ongoing career placement services, 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, Health-Supportive Culinary Arts and Restaurant & Culinary Management in just six to 12 months. We have convenient morning, afternoon, evening and weekend classes starting each month throughout the calendar year. Our 38,000-square-foot professional facility features small, hands-on classes with attentive, distinguished 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 LA'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 four decades. 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 or hospitality 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, explore ICE to learn what sets the school apart from the rest.
Come in to Taste the Success
Twice a year, ICE holds a special school counselor social exclusively for counselors, education professionals and career advisors at our facility in Los Angeles. These after-work events provide the opportunity to witness firsthand how ICE's award-winning programs can turn your students' passion for food into a creative, successful career.
