The Pittsburgh Technical Institute will launch a culinary school, the American Academy of Culinary Arts, this summer at its North Fayette campus.

Greg DeFeo, president of the Pittsburgh Technical Institute, said the school anticipates accepting 44 students for its first class to begin July 18, and ultimately hopes to enroll up to 120 students a year in the 15-month certificate program, under the direction of Chef Norman Peter Hart.

Hart was named national educator of the year by the American Culinary Federation in 2007. He is certified by the federation as an executive chef and as a culinary educator. He is a member of the American Academy of Chefs, DeFeo said.

Tuition for the 15-month program has been set at $25,000, the institute said. The program includes a three-month internship. DeFeo said the new culinary arts center is now under construction at the North Fayette campus.
