Shopping, Classes, and More for Enthusiasts


    Campus Life at CIA California

  • Student Activities Abound at CIA California

    When you're immersed in the CIA experience at Greystone, there are plenty of ways to stay involved outside of the teaching kitchens and classrooms. Activities like the Student Garden Project, Edible Explorations student club, and family meal give you the chance to connect with peers. You can relax and hang out with roommates at one of our two Vineyard Lodges or in the on-campus Guest House. You'll also be right in the middle of amazing special events like the annual Worlds of Flavor® Conference & Festival, and the Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives Conference.

    For off-campus fun, you're a short ride away from San Francisco, or you can enjoy the world-class wineries and restaurants, hot air ballooning, hiking, horseback riding, bicycle trails, and many other activities offered in the Napa Valley.

  • Our public restaurants make it real—you prepare and serve meals to customers right on campus.
