Phase Two FAQ

What to Wear

Dress is casual for Phase Two Orientation. However, you should not wear sandals, flip flops, or any other type of open-toed shoes as you will be in the kitchens.

What to Bring

  • notebook
  • pen
  • lock for your locker
  • local address and telephone number
  • vehicle license plate number if you plan to have a car on campus
  • final official high school transcript, health history form, and TB test results, if not already submitted


If you have successfully completed the ServSafe certification program within the last two years, you may choose to be exempted from taking Sanitation Management (exempted students will receive a grade of “P” for pass). To be considered for this exemption, we need a copy of your certificate. You will not be officially exempt from the course until this information has been received and reviewed. If you have not submitted your certificate yet, you must do so prior to classes beginning.

Students driving to Phase Two Orientation should park in the gravel lot adjacent to the Academy. Phase Two will start at the Fairman Centre, one block east of the Academy.
