Our Story

The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, an associate member of the network of EHL-Certified Schools is a non-profit private Jordanian institution.

It was founded in 2008 to fulfill the vision of his Majesty King Abdullah II of having a culinary school in Jordan operating at the highest international standards, and to introduce the Swiss experience of merging practical and hands- on training with academic education.

The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts opened as a Campus of Les Roches Global Hospitality Education, as the first culinary school managed and operated by them in the world. Entering its second decade of being the leading culinary school in Jordan and the region, the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (RACA) has entered into a partnership with Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, one of the oldest top Hospitality Management schools in the world.

Being one of the development projects of King Abdullah II Fund for Development (KAFD), RACA supports youth employability, women empowerment, supporting local tourism industry, and minimizing the need to import expertise in the hotel and restaurant fields which are in line with KAFD Key Performance Indicators.

RACA has diverse streamed programs for all students who completed high school. The curriculum is entirely taught in English language to students of any race, nationality, gender, color, religion or creed.

Graduating more than 600 professional chefs, the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts located itself on the local and regional map as the market leader for culinary education through its commitment to quality, innovation and industry-relevant educational programs, coupled with the highest values of social integration.
