Culinary Institute of America
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is an American private not-for-profit college specializing in culinary and baking and pastry arts education. The CIA's primary campus is located in Hyde Park, New York, with branch campuses in St. Helen and Napa, California, San Antonio, Texas, and the Republic of Singapore. The college offers associate and bachelor's degrees, and has the largest staff of American Culinary Federation Certified Master Chefs. The CIA also offers continuing education for professionals in the hospitality industry as well as conferences and consulting services. In addition to professional education, the college also offers recreational classes for non-professionals. The college operates student-run restaurants on their four U.S. campuses. The school colors (green and gold) refer to the school's mission to sustain the environment and to strive for excellence.
The school was founded in 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut, as a vocational institute for returning veterans of World War II. With a growing student body, the school purchased a former Jesuit novitiate in Hyde Park in 1970, which remains its central campus.
