Be in communication with us, it really is the best way of doing things)

Student Safety, COVID, Vaccinations, and more.

UPDATED: May 23, 2024: COVID Vaccine is no longer required at campusNYC

First and foremost, we are committed to student safety.  Our summer programs must follow all university and venue guidelines, as well as any city state or federal laws, and that includes COVID policies, which continue to evolve.  

Our venues have removed the COVID Vax requirement, so we no longer require the COVID vaccine to attend our program… though we strongly encourage it!

Payment Plans and Cost Structures: We can work with you on your payment plan. Enroll by paying the $1,000 deposit; after that we allow you to pay as much as you want, whenever you want, with no additional fee as long as the program is fully paid before your session starts.

Enrollment process: Admission to our cooking school is rolling and subject to closure upon the program reaching maximum enrollment. We do not require letters of recommendation, transcripts, essays or pictures of previous culinary masterpieces. Applications will be accepted until a week before the program begins, or when the program fills, whichever occurs first.

Waitlist and sold out session status at our culinary summer programs in NYC: 

We have been sold out, with a waitlist, for the last 3 summers, and before COVID, and basically every summer before that. So if you have a young chef and this program speaks to you and your family, please register while you can!

Want to check if a session is sold out? Check the register now button (HERE) and look for your session and type, if it is sold-out it will say so; there will be easy to spot the waitlist sign-up. We will update this website with that information from time to time; the best information is found in our reg system.

ZOOM Q+A Information Sessions:

For interested parents before camp:   All Zoom Q+A for prospective parents are complete for this year. From time to time we will offer Zoom session to inform families about the program, meet staff and answer questions.  Sign up for our mailing list and free recipe program to be sent the info automatically!  Join the list by clicking HERE. Ask us a question or get the latest recipe!

For enrolled families:  As we get close to camp we will offer Zoom sessions just for registered families to meet and greet and answer questions.  We will email you about this in the late spring.  

“Actually, thank YOU! That parent info/Q&A was the first time in two years that I have left a “school meeting” feeling more positively about a program. In any event, my thanks to you and your colleagues for the bright spot of hope. Quinn and I are both super excited for the time he is going to spend with you, and I am already hoping that future summers might include even more of it! VERY best wishes” – Elysabeth (2022 Parent)
