Your child is enriched through studies in a wide variety of topics in the Culinary & Health Sciences program. Students learn about anatomy, nutrition, and the biology of how food affects the body. They explore other cultures' diets and lifestyles and plan and prepare meals. Incorporating math, science, critical thinking, and analytical and writing skills, the students calculate measurements, explore how different ingredients react with each other, creatively combine ingredients, plan menus, and write recipes.
To establish the right foundation for these studies, your child will participate in various activities that create a basic understanding of self-worth in order to realize the importance of maintaining personal health. Human anatomy studies, using an abundance of hand-on experimentation in our Science Lab, teaches your child how a body's basic internal systems work together. This brings your child to understand the role of good nutrition in helping the body to function with maximum efficiency.
Activities in our own organic garden help children explore their direct connection with the ecosystem and how to increase the environment's sustainability. Students learn how a well-balanced, healthy environment supplies plentiful food. They explore where food comes from and learn what defines real food. This supports your child’s understanding of how human behavior directly impacts the environment.
