We continuously strive to build a culture of care, sincerity, and teamwork reflected by our Code of Ethics. We want Culinary Arts Academy to be an inclusive place to study and we welcome our students to share their differences.

Since our studies are within the framework of the Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Culinary Arts Academy also follows the precepts and articles of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism from the UNWTO. All our classes, activities, and even our own Code of Ethics, have been designed taking into account the 10 articles of this global framework, and shared with our students, staff, and management.
