6th-9th Boys & Girls Dining Etiquette Program

with Natalie Trujillo


In today's world, where etiquette is a beacon of civility, our lessons focus on the timeless principles of dining and socialization. 

Each class is held once a week for six weeks and carefully tailored for optimal learning, ensuring an intimate setting with a limited class size of ten students, one dedicated assistant, and our knowledgeable instructor. (Class time 1hr 15 min.)

Join us as we guide your young adult towards a future marked by confidence, grace, and the ability to excel in any social setting.

(At least five students needed to run this program)

Lesson 1 Introductions

Mastering the art of introductions sets the stage for confident interactions. Students learn the importance of a firm handshake, maintaining eye contact, and presenting themselves with poise.

Lesson 2 Phone Etiquette

Extend your polished manners to the realm of telephonic conversations. Students master the art of polite and effective phone conversations, projecting courtesy.

Lesson 3 Mastering the Art of Thank You Notes

Our curriculum delves into every facet of refined behavior, including the often-overlooked skill of crafting thank-you notes. This crucial lesson empowers participants to write thank-you notes with confidence and finesse, ensuring that their gratitude is expressed in a polished and heartfelt manner.

Lesson 4 Table Decorum

Discover the elegance of proper table manners. From the correct use of utensils to navigating multiple-course meals, students gain an understanding of how to shine in formal dining settings.

Lesson 5 Dining Skills

Delve into the world of dining etiquette, ensuring you shine in any culinary setting. Students will explore European and American dining styles with confidence.

Lesson 6 Parent / Student Wrap-up

A shared experience for parents and students, this wrap-up session reinforces the lessons learned and provides tools for continued practice at home and beyond.

Optional Lesson 7 Four-Course Meal 

We believe in immersive learning, and students in our 6th-12th grade programs have the unique opportunity to put their newfound skills into practice during a four-course meal at a restaurant (optional and separate from the program cost).

Our commitment to excellence is underscored by the presentation of 'Certificates of Achievement' to all students who complete the program.
