We look forward to sharing our culinary experience with you.

The L'École Culinaire cooking school curriculum is designed to provide all culinary students with a strong and well-rounded background in the hospitality and food and beverage industry. To this end our Kansas City cooking school students spend 100% of their time on the study of their chosen field. We use a unique curricular structure based on a ten-week educational phase rather than on traditional college semesters or quarters. Our curriculum allows students to concentrate their learning efforts and get the most from their education.

We are currently offering a Diploma in Culinary Fundamentals and an Associate of Occupational Studies in Culinary & Restaurant Management

How do I pay for school?

Any student accepted for admission or currently enrolled at L'École Culinaire may apply for financial aid. Upon completion of all necessary forms, the Financial Aid Office will determine the types and amounts of Financial Aid for which you may qualify and assist you in processing the application. Financial aid is available to all who qualify. However, all students, regardless of payment options or funding sources, are ultimately responsible for payment of their tuition, fees, books, uniforms, tools and taxes and any other costs associated with their education. If you receive a Federal Student Loan, you will be committed to repaying all or a portion of that loan regardless of whether you complete your education or go to work.
