The Bakery Pastry Arts program at Lorain County JVS prepares students for careers as an Assistant Pastry Chef, Baker, Baker’s Helper, or Pastry Chef. The program, in partnership with Lorain County Community College, gives students an opportunity to earn college credit that lead into a Culinary Arts pathway.
