Career Explorations offers rising high school seniors the opportunity to explore higher education and careers in baking & pastry arts, culinary arts and the hospitality industry. Priority is given to rising seniors, but rising juniors may be considered. A five-day class is available only at the North Miami campus.

The unique “fly-in” program is for students living further than a six-hour drive from a program. The University will purchase tickets for a student to fly to campus. Once there, the fee includes tuition, housing and meals.
