Following graduation these students—along with their classmates—will be whisked off to one of the world's sweetest food destinations, New York City. Four days and three nights of pastry experiences will give students the opportunity to connect to the place where The FCI story began more than 25 years ago.

The Classic Pastry Arts curriculum at The FCI teaches students everything from pate a choux to sugar pulling while highlighting the delicate balance between artistry and science within the discipline. In as little as six months (by day, or nine by night), students experience the program's hands-on, Total Immersion(SM) teaching method that provides them with the skills, confidence and solid foundation needed to excel in the industry.
