Art Institute Pastry and Baking Program

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am trying to decide if I want to enroll in the Art Institute for the Baking and Pastry program. There are only two places in my local area that offer this program, AI and the community college. I am not excited about the program at our community college. Can anyone tell me anything about your experiences with AI? It's about 20 thousand or a little less because I have taken some of the pre-reqs elsewhere. Not sure if it is worth the money...

 

 

Thanks for any help!

I already responded to your private message, but I had to add a couple things.

Read this article about the new facility at JCCC first:http://www.kansascity.com/2013/08/18/4419585/johnson-county-community-colleges.html

They now have one of the best facilities in the country. Aside from having a better facility than AI, they have a MUCH better apprenticeship program. Three year apprenticeship, and they have relationships with James Beard winners across the city so you'll get to learn from the region's top chefs. They are also more highly accredited by the ACF, one of only 28 programs in the country with an "exemplary" rating. Not to mention, JCCC costs about 15-20% as much as AI. Better education for a lot less money.
