How to Enroll
The 2013 classes at the Community Culinary School of Charlotte will begin Wednesday, Jan. 16; Wednesday, May 15; and Wednesday, Sept. 11. If you are interested in learning the culinary arts, we'd like for you to apply for a place in an upcoming class.
Gaining a place in the class takes four steps.
Submit an application for enrollment. The application is two pages. Click on the picture at right to download the PDF file. You can print out the PDF file, then fill in your information with a pen or pencil. Then either mail the application, or bring it by our office. The address is:
Community Culinary School of Charlotte
2401-A Distribution St.
Charlotte, NC 28203
We are not providing here a version of the application that may be filed directly on a computer. Here's why:
The application asks for sensitive information. All information is held in the strictest confidence by the School. But some of our prospective students use computers in public places. We do not want to put anyone in a position where their private information might be seen by others.
2. Schedule an interview.
All prospective students must be interviewed by a School official before they become a part of the next class. Call 704-375-4500 to schedule this interview.
Schedule an evaluation.
During the evaluation, you will be in the Culinary School building for several hours, and will be asked to participate in the tasks going on at that time in the building. This is an evaluation of your skills and your attitude, and is part of the application process. You will not be paid.
4. Drug screen.
After completing the evaluation, you will be asked to go to McLeod Addictive Disease Center to complete a drug screen. A School official will give you a form to take to the McLeod Center stating that you are applying to be a student. There is no charge to the student at any time.
You must complete a drug screen to begin the program. If at any time a positive drug screen is returned, the student will be dismissed from the program until treatment has been sought.
