AHT helps students chart career paths in one of the world’s largest industries, from hotel and event management to sports and entertainment. Academic and technical courses and fun learning experiences introduce students to the world of hospitality, and the main segments of the industry: lodging, food and beverage preparation, restaurant and food/beverage service management, and operations, tourism, attractions, travel-related services, event management, and marketing. Students learn knowledge and skills that provide excellent customer service and meet industry standards. Students receive practical, real-world experiences as they learn to cook in a professionally equipped kitchen, run the Blue Phantom Inn, participate in regional and national competitions, and/or volunteer or get paid internships with industry partners, such as hotels, restaurants, resorts, tourism bureaus, and Fort Monroe National Monument. The Culinary Arts and Travel and Tourism prepare students for entry-level hospitality positions and success in continued study at the postsecondary training and education institutions.
