Best Value Schools Names SPC Among 10 Best Culinary Schools in Texas
May 18, 2021
St. Philip's College was named to the 10 Best Culinary Schools in Texas in 2021 list by Best Value Schools (BVS). BVS provides rankings to students to help them compare and find the most valuable college experience.
Recognized as exemplary by both the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the American Culinary Federation, the Tourism, Hospitality, and Culinary Arts (THCA) programs at St. Philip’s College prepare aspiring hospitality industry professionals for success and service within their industry. The tourism industry is vital to the San Antonio and South Texas economy. Approximately 37 million people visit San Antonio per year, and the tourism industry has an estimated $15.2 billion impact on the city's economy.
This year, THCA students were welcomed into the new and recently completed Tourism, Hospitality, and Culinary Arts Center of Excellence. The 61,200 square foot, four-story facility features state-of-the-art industry-standard equipment, 898 Café on the first floor, a pastry café on the second, and the crowning jewel on the fourth floor - Artemisia’s Restaurant. The full service, student-run restaurant, is cantilevered from the north end of the building and wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass for dramatic views of the downtown San Antonio skyline.
