Food and Finance High School

Overview written by the school: We offer an academically challenging CTE program focusing on the culinary arts and finance. Since we believe that food is fundamental to personal, social, economic, and ecological health, the themes of food and finance are integrated into our curriculum and school environment. Cornell University Extension, our lead partner, brings expertise in science, sustainable food production, nutrition, and other topics. Students develop critical thinking skills while engaged in projects, internships, and entrepreneurial ventures. In addition to the state endorsed CTE diploma, students are expected to take a series of industry-recognized certification examinations.
