Elite 50

Congratulations to the
2016 Elite 50 winners!

The Elite 50 list is comprised of high schools and tech centers that excel in the areas of culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, and/or hospitality management. Some are state and national competition winners from ProStart, SkillsUSA and Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). We also conducted research to establish schools with strong hospitality enrollment and influence in their community. Included are many schools we specifically paid visits to that we deemed to have strong hospitality studies programs.

Additional criteria for those selected for the Elite 50 included: an original recipe with photos or a restaurant management design; two essays from students on the topic, "Why I want to pursue a career in hospitality"; and video(s), brochure(s) and additional information about the school’s program. Further considerations were given to schools that operate a restaurant or offer catering service, etc. as part of culinary/hospitality training.
