Say you paid for a skydiving lesson, but as you jumped from the plane, were told there would be an additional parachute-deployment fee. This is, in essence, what a lot of culinary schools do. They nickel-and-dime students with unexpected costs in order to appear cheaper. At ACI, when you pay your tuition, it covers everything — fees, textbooks, knives, uniforms, even refresher courses. And, we’re fully accredited, which means financial aid is available. Nice.
