The French Pastry School, based in Chicago, has announced a new partnership with Robert Morris University Illinois. FPS will offer certificate programs in Pastry and Baking, Cake, and Bread for Robert Morris University’s highly-ranked culinary program.

FPS has been providing world-class education to aspiring chefs on local, national, and global levels since 1995. This new partnership will strengthen that goal by enhancing the offerings of both schools and reaching more students starting in 2019.

“By partnering with RMU, FPS will be able to bring out world-class programs to even more students,” says Chef Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of The French Pastry School.

The full-time programs, which will be taught at the current FPS location in downtown Chicago, will run at various times during the year beginning in February 2019.

  • Pastry and Baking: February 18th and July 15th starts
  • Cake: February 18th and September 23rd starts
  • Bread: July 15th start (upon accreditation approval)

“We believe the collaboration will be a great success and will provide an ongoing supply of pastry chefs to the culinary industry here in Chicago and around the world,” says Chef Sebastien Canonne, M.O.F., co-founder of FPS.
