ProStart is the culinary arts program for the high school led by Brian Covell, ProStart Instructor/Culinary Educator. From culinary techniques to management skills, ProStart’s industry-driven curriculum provides real-life experience opportunities and builds practical skills and a foundation that will last a lifetime.
