Tuition & Financial Aid: I think everything is good. The school needs to have someone there to help with financial aid.

Facilities: Honestly my school doesn't set it's self part from other schools. I wish I went to johnson and wales instead. The only nice thing about the school is it's small size and convenience. There is no school spirit or campus life. A nice unique opportunity would be the volunteer connections they have.

Academic Flexibility: You can transfer credits into the school. You cannot transfer The Chef's Academy credits to any other school. The class schedule is already set and you don't have to sigh up classes yourself which is nice. You know you will always have a spot in a class you need.

Academic Experience: The academic classes at my school are just a joke. Because The Chef's Academy is nationally accredited and not regionally accredited universities will not accept your credits from this school. I am planning on getting a bachelors degree somewhere else. Because my credits don't transfer it has made me very unmotivated at this school. As long as I pass a class I don't care what grade I get because these grades don't matter any further then The Chef's Academy.

Academic Experience: My specific major is baking and pastry arts. I really like my chef instructor, but I feel that I didn't have enough time spent to absorb the things that were being taught. The workload was not to heavy. I had to find an internship on my own and it is unpaid. I was told that many pastry internship will be unpaid which is very difficult financially.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The online courses are way better then actually taking a course with the teacher. Every week you have a discussion question so that gives you peer to peer interaction. The professors were not very helpful and you really had to figure things out on your own. The work load was really light and simple. I did like the site that they use for online classes. It is very user friendly. When something does go wrong though it is extremely difficult to get tech support.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not graduated from the school yet. The said that they help in job placement after you graduate, but I doubt they actually do. Another was promise was that you could come back after you graduated to "refresh" on skills. AgainI'm not sure if these actually happen or not.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process has been fairly straight forward. It did concern me that another financial aid director at The Chef's Academy in Indiana was contacting me and dealing with my financial aid issues. I did learn some important tricks while in school, but nothing I couldn't have learned from the internet. I feel like I was ripped off. The amount of money I am paying for this school is absolutely ridiculous.I would have quite going to this school a long time ago if I didn't already pay them money. The only reason I am still attending school here now is so I can get my associates degree.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am very disappointed in the education I have received from this school based on the huge amount of money I will have to spend on student loans. I did not learn as much as I had hoped and was not fully prepared to be emerged in a fully operational kitchen for my internship. I am also disappointed in the lack of follow through. I was told about all the great things the school has to offer. Throughout the 2 years I have been attending I feel as though I should have just attending a community college instead.

3 College Senior

Student Body: There is a large amount of ethnic diversity in the school. It is very simple to get accepted into the school no matter who you are. Most of the pastry students are women, but there seems to be a large variety of sexual diversity through the school.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are not many campus activities that take place. The school has tried to have clubs, but no one ever joins them due to the lack of excitement . The library is equipped with recipe books and many computers. The librarian is knowledgeable, nice, and very helpful. The campus is usually kept up pretty well. There is a small student lounge with vending machines.

Academic Flexibility: my experience with my school is great the student are great the teachers an administration are the best they make you feel really welcome once you walk thru the doors of da campus.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Something I thought was unique was its active engagement with the current culinary workforce. I competed in my first professional food competition in just my 3rd week of school; made it to the finals and placed 2nd! I originally only participated just for the experience (win/lose), however being able to apply what I learned in such a short about of time made the difference. We learn real life and practical skills that will benefit us in the industry. Placing 2nd out of 20 teams is a testimony of that.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Our LRC (Library Resource Center) is pretty helpful. There are always multiple computers available for use. Printing and copies are free so technically one would not have the need for a personal computer unless they preferred to work off campus. I prefer to do a little of both.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus is pretty small; however I've found the staff to be very helpful in providing the proper resources for my success

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: the programs for my major are great from what I have been told right now im a online student for the chefs academy I start classes in January but from what mi adviser told me they offer the best help with your work the classes online are good an as far as job opportunities they can help you with setting up interviews to finding another job that's in your field of work

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: right now all my academics are online but with them being online my professors are there reaching out too there online students each and everyday. they set up study guides to help you learn more with the work you have and to me since I have been online I can say they are real gud help when it comes to the academics
