OVERLAND PARK (AP) -- Johnson County Community College is welcoming about 700 students to its new $13 million culinary academy.

Classes at the Hospitality & Culinary Academy begin Monday. Students will find a much larger work space with five new culinary labs that cook with gas instead of electricity.

The college already has the largest culinary apprenticeship program in the country. It's accredited by the American Culinary Federation and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/17XIxsU ) only 225 of the nearly 5,000 culinary programs in the United States have earned ACF accreditation. The Johnson Community College program is one of only 28 programs that received an exemplary rating.

The college's upgrades mean the program can eventually add 200 more entry-level students.
