Come experience the lost art of cooking! CAP Academy attracts students with a high interest in a career of culinary preparation, food service and management. Arrive an amateur and depart well trained to meet demands in skillful preparation and presentation that is as pleasing to the palate as to the eye.

CAP’s collaboration with collegiate culinary programs along with several local restaurants/country clubs, allow us to offer pre-professional training that enables our students to immediately enter the food industry. CAP Academy offers culinary classes or workshops and hosts Dinner Theater productions throughout the year.


Beginning instruction in banquet design, setup, back-of-house rules and regulations, equipment, floral arranging, place settings, and more!


Food can be a showpiece in itself. You won't need a centerpiece on your buffet table or sideboard if you set out an impressive wheel of canvas-wrapped Stilton surrounded by figs, or a handsome haunch of Serrano ham. Carving out the first slice lets guests know it's perfectly acceptable to eat the art.


Beginning instruction in cake design.


Students will receive instruction from food stylist and food photographers and gain opportunity to produce photographs for an ad agency, menu design company, restaurant, hotel, or the Plain Dealer.
