Culinary school enrollment has been on the rise in recent years, but high tuition rates still deter many students from pursuing a culinary education.
The average culinary tuition has surpassed $30,000, making it difficult for many students to afford. As a result, many students don’t end up pursuing their dream of working in the culinary arts.
