    The CIA San Antonio campus is a welcoming community of students, instructors, and alumni committed to the culinary arts and the special world of Latin cuisines. At the campus, the college offers its gold-standard associate degree programs in both culinary arts and baking & pastry arts.

    CIA students learn about food in an advanced way that you simply can't find anywhere else. That's because CIA students go beyond memorizing and executing foods and cooking techniques—they learn how to analyze them, to adapt them, to get creative with them. At the CIA, you develop a special understanding of food that gives you the foundation to grow and be a culinary leader. That’s why top foodservice companies turn to the CIA when it's time to hire.

    The CIA San Antonio campus is set among restored 19th century buildings at Pearl, an exciting new center complete with restaurants, apartments, retail, and special events.
