General Information About Arizona Culinary Institute
Arizona Culinary Institute's program was designed to make efficient use of your time and resources. In a recent poll, 76% of ACI graduates completed the program in a little as 9 months or less! "Wow! Only 9 months? How is that even possible?" you may ask. Our philosophy is simple. Students learn most efficiently when they are in a small group, comfortable environment, and receive personal attention from each instructor. Our team consists of a diverse and well-balanced group of Chef Instructors with real world experience and a genuine passion for teaching. Another reason why ACI is different is through the hands-on learning experience our students receive. Indulge your passion for cooking by learning through trial and error and personal instruction rather than pouring through a textbook at home.
