Career Technical Education (CTE) is expanding at Florin High School with the addition of a new Culinary Arts Center. The Culinary Center joins a new Agricultural Center and Engineering Center in forming the Florin High School CTE Trifecta and the first new construction on the campus since it opened in 1988. At over 8,000 s.f., the facility houses two commercial teaching kitchens, a collaborative demonstration and event center, and break-out spaces for collaboration with community restaurant partners. An outdoor covered patio provides outdoor dining and event space for the numerous campus and community events planned to showcase the program. The Culinary Center shares its site with an expansion to the school’s existing Agricultural program, forming a unique partnership between the two programs and giving students an early exposure to the emerging regional farm-to-fork movement. This facility is partially funded by a grant through the California Department of Educations’s Career Technical Education Program.
