All CMTHS programs integrate college preparatory coursework with an emphasis on technical skills. Recent graduates from the Culinary Arts program are attending The Restaurant School, Johnson & Wales University, PA Culinary Institute, Baltimore International College and Montgomery County Community College.
The Culinary Arts and Restaurant Practices Program offers a cutting edge curriculum for all students interested in culinary arts, baking, service management and related fields to study in our state-of-the-art kitchen and restaurant.
Students have the opportunity to demonstrate skills at our in-house restaurant and catering program while providing services to residents of the local community.
This program directly articulates with several two and four-year colleges and many graduates are employed locally, statewide, nationally and internationally
Students get hands-on experience in: safety practices, sanitation practices, various baking techniques, planning, storage and receiving, and merchandising.
Students participate in a special classroom management system validated by the American Culinary Federation. This system incorporates culinary arts, baking, service management, and workplace skills achieved through high academic standards and challenging, yet realistic, practical experiences.
The Baking and Pastry Arts Program is now a Dual Enrollment Class with Montgomery County Community College (MCCC). MCCC has approved our instructor as an adjunct professor. As a result, students will receive transcripted college credit(s) that can be used to continue their post-secondary education at MCCC or any number of institutions. Students must earn a grade of "B"or higher to receive the credit(s).
In a new, state-of-the-art facility, a caring and highly qualified professional staff share their skills while challenging and encouraging their students. Many of the instructors have established high profiles in their fields of expertise prior to becoming teachers. Students not only get to know their teachers, but the teachers get to know them and respond to their individual needs as they extend their support and enthusiasm while preparing students for the future. The students are able to obtain a variety of state and nationally recognized certifications and licenses.
Students have the option to participate in two nationally recognized career and technical student organizations – SkillsUSA and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA). Students can compete at the district, state and national levels.
Central Montco Technical High School has allocated in excess of $750,000 in financial aid to graduating seniors.
