About the Culinary Arts Academy

The Culinary Arts Academy is one of the exciting Corpus Christi Independent School District’s magnet programs housed in Foy H. Moody High School. The Culinary Arts Program is open to all students in the CCISD with the exception of those who are scheduled to attend Ray High School. Ray also has a Culinary Arts program and those students must go to there. 

The purpose of this program is to provide students with an education and necessary tools to succeed in a post-secondary educational experience in the food services and hospitality industries. The program also allows students to begin earning articulated college credits in high school. Students in the program would gain practicum experiences with various food production industries.  

Culinary arts students participate in local, regional and state-level competitions as they develop culinary skills. Students are on an academic curriculum path to earn a Public Service graduation endorsement in the Hospitality and Tourism cluster. 

Admission in the Culinary Arts Academy is strictly by application.  Students can only be admitted in the program in Grade 9.
