About culinary arts training in MPS (website)

Four MPS high schools launched the new two-year culinary program this year. The ProStart program will help students get a head start in the growing and exciting culinary arts and hospitality fields.

ProStart is a hands-on curriculum created by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation for high school students. It features real-world culinary arts and food service management opportunities that help students learn skills that can last a lifetime. Students also earn a certificate when they complete the program as well as college credits while they’re still in high school.
