Are you passionate about cooking? Do you dream of becoming a culinary expert? Welcome to The Culinary Arts International, formerly the AHA Culinary School!

Our technique-based curriculum is designed to deliver a culinary arts education that prepares students for a successful career in the industry. With interactive courses led by global talent, we equip students with the training they need to have a competitive advantage in the culinary world.



Years Experience

Cultivating culinary excellence for 14 years

Founded in 2006, AHA Culinary School Inc established itself as a visionary leader in professional culinary education before being rebranded as The Culinary Arts International. As one of the first schools to offer a certified culinary education in the Philippines, we are proud to see our graduates go on to make a real impact in the global industry. After shifting to 100% online classes during the pandemic, we are excited to welcome our students back to the laboratory for a blended program with hands-on learning.

With culinary programs certified by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation (ACFEF), our graduates have become chefs and culinary professionals in some of the world’s finest restaurants or opened the doors of their own dining establishments. For over a decade, The Culinary Arts International has graduated more than 1000 students who are now enjoying fulfilling careers in the industry.

We have also partnered with the Florence University of the Arts – Apicius International School of Hospitality in Italy for a hands-on culinary program, which offers students advanced culinary courses and experiential learning in Italian cuisine. Through this partnership, students can stay in Florence for one to three months and experience being an in-house student, taking their learning from the actual kitchen to the broader scope of Italian culture.

Making culinary arts accessible

If you can’t commit to full-time studies, don’t worry! At The Culinary Arts International, we are mindful of the fact that many students interested in our programs may work full-time during the program duration. In such cases, we offer flexible curriculums to ensure all students have a chance to start working towards their culinary career. Although we are no longer offering 100% online courses, we continue to offer online lectures paired with on-site laboratory training.

Small Class Sizes

Our personal class sizes are perfect for anyone serious about building their career in the industry and doing the work it takes to get to the top. With classes of no more than 7 with 2 instructors, we provide you with a hyper-focused educational experience.
