CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Escoffier Online International Culinary Academy now offers branded access to Escoffier's comprehensive programs, offering certifications in both Culinary Arts and Pastry Arts. The first-ever online culinary school, and Harper College, a community college in Palatine, IL, today announced a partnership to deliver the turnkey Culinary Arts online program for the college's Continuing Education students.

With a number of offerings already in the culinary space, Harper College's Continuing Education Department continues to see growing student demand for a more comprehensive culinary program. The new online program is ideal for students who want to pursue professional chef training, as well as for serious food enthusiasts looking to enhance their skills. Registration for the new Culinary Arts Program powered by Escoffier Online will begin in February 2013. As part of the partnership, Escoffier Online will pass along a 15 percent tuition discount to all Harper district students registering for the program.

"We wanted to bring more choices to students in the continuing education arena, and felt the online model offered the most modern and convenient way to provide our students with access to a world-class culinary program," said Scott Cashman, Manager for Personal and Cultural Enrichment. "Harper is always looking for innovative ways to expand our offerings. The partnership with Escoffier Online was a good way to accomplish this."
