Port Richmond High School’s Culinary Arts Academy is an academically rigorous four-year program in which our students explore the culinary arts and prepare for college. Our partnerships with organizations such as C-CAP (Careers through Culinary Arts) and ProStart (the curriculum for the New York State Restaurant Association) allow us to offer our students opportunities to visit colleges and culinary schools; in addition, our students participate in internships and job shadowing in world class restaurants, such as Jean George, Nobu 57 and Lexington Brass, to prepare them for possible careers in the culinary arts. Our students give back to the school and to our community through our student-run Raider Café. Our upperclassmen have been awarded full scholarships to prestigious colleges and culinary schools such as the Culinary Institute of America, the French Culinary Institute, New York City Tech, and Monroe College.
The Institute for Business, Hospitality, Entrepreneurship, and Technology is a small learning community that immerses students in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructional model that prepares them for business, economics, finance and career education. The program combines a rigorous academic curriculum of Regents level and college readiness instruction that prepares students for both careers and postsecondary opportunities. The capstone courses, Virtual Enterprise and Academy of Hospitality and Tourism, provide "virtual" business experiences in a school setting.
