Our Syosset Campus occupies approximately 16,000 square feet in a suburban setting near major Long Island roadways. Four operating kitchens are equipped with standard equipment for commercial kitchens. Two attractive dining areas serve as student lounge space, as well as a simulated restaurant environment, allowing Culinary students to serve as part of the training program. Allied Health students study in clinical laboratories that simulate an outpatient facility, hospital, or a physician’s office. A library/resource room for the Culinary and Allied Health programs offers Internet-accessible computers, a collection of culinary books and periodicals, culinary videos, and a copier. A Career Services collection is also available to students during their job search and an LCD computer projection system with Internet access enhances classroom instruction throughout the campus.
For most, the ability to wake up each morning excited to start the work day, is a far cry from reality. This held true for graduate Debbie Guida before she began her time at Star Career Academy. Guida, who had previously done administrative work, claimed “I’ve always had a dream of becoming a chef, but before Star it was only just that, a dream.”
Star Career Academy, which offers a broad range of concentrations within the culinary arts, provides not only the tools to succeed but creates the hands on environment needed to prepare students for their futures. “I have worked alongside cooks who have been in the industry for many years” says Guida (who had chosen the Professional Cooking Program) “but if you want to be the best in this industry you really need to have the right education, and Star gave that to me.”
Where is she now you ask? Upon completing her time at Star Career Academy, Guida now happily works for Ever So Saucy Foods in Newark as a Sous Chef. “I never thought I would be given the opportunity to live this dream, at least not until graduating from Star,” says Guida. “I wake up each day for work excited to begin my day. I love what I do and if I am ever asked what I do for a living you can’t help but see the smile forming on my face.”
Without Star Career Academy, Guida insists she would not be as happy and successful as she is today.
