If you are looking for a great culinary school with excellent facilities, a great faculty, small classes, and in a beautiful part of the world at a reasonable cost then look no further. Oregon Coast Culinary Institute’s 17,000 square foot facility is a start-of-the-art culinary facility with three large teaching kitchens, three classrooms, a huge area for banquets with a beautiful demonstration kitchen. Take a look at our new building on this web site. Our chef instructors are all American Culinary Federation certified and they have won numerous awards and worked in kitchens and restaurants throughout the United States. The southern Oregon coast has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, and the campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College is located next to Empire Lakes and is extremely attractive. Best of all, you can live on campus in student housing, and the cost of our tuition and housing is substantially less than you what you will pay for tuition alone at many of the other culinary schools in the United States. Don’t forget, we will deduct $300 from your tuition if you visit the Oregon Coast Culinary Institute and subsequently enroll in the institute. Looking forward to seeing and serving you.
OCCI has provided me with opportunities I had never known were possible. On top of being in a program working side by side with master chefs, I have been able to play softball, complete my externship on campus, and I am now completing my business degree. These opportunites are steps to fulfilling my dream of owning a bakery and they have given me the confidence to know I'll be successful. I wouldn't think of going anywhere else!
