I have been thinking, is Totsuki Academy the only cooking school?
And what if there are cooks that are the same level as Souma and peers, who didn't join the Academy?
Remember Souma didn't seem to know about the Academy so can there be more rivals?
Please tell me your ideas guys!

Since it would be a bit off-topic in the chapter discussion thread, I made a thread just for this question because it is interesting enough to deserve it. I was wondering the same for while now.
I believe that there may be another Rival School in the future because it would fit in perfectly for the elite ten being only students to compete or etc.
I don't see much for the Elite Ten except business and status from what I can see, feel free to comment on my mistake if anyone notices it.
I am gonna be honest, all my cooking dreams are in this manga and I believe this manga has a chance at being the best cooking manga for me. I would hate for author to rush the story and not try to take it one step at a time and span out the paths he can use. Thanks for reading and hope you will forever continue reading the manga.
Peace Out Ma Homies
Answering the question now...
Do you mean independent rivals? Those who are neither in Tootsuki, nor in another school? There is always this possibility, they can make a contest where anywhere can participate and some characters of his kind could appear, but I don't have any theories about that since any clue was given in the story.

I rely on Shokugeki no Soma authors completely. They are going to make a good work, I'm sure. The series has a large universe to explore, it can last many years without getting boring.
There are most certainly other cooking schools, but Tootsuki will remain the only one relevant to the plot, given its reputation.
I would think that the Tootsuki is more than just a Culinary Academy. It is also deemed as a boot camp training ground for the would-be chef and since the TOotsuki Group own it, there is no doubt that the graduated students would go for the academy too. Just wondering....
I don't think that they will introduce more schools that will be relevant to the plot of the story, maybe a few to show that there are others aside from Tootsuki. But the plot of Shokugeki no Souma is about the life and struggles to reach for the top in the most prestigious cooking school in the country rather than an inter-academy competition because to start with, Tootsuki has no competition from being the best school.
Seems unrealistic to make it the only one. I imagine there will be a future plot in which they will have to do some competition against another school.
i also want other culinary schools but if that didn't happen i want Soma to be kicked out or leave Tootsuki and travel around the world and return again to the academy as a master
- First of all, we actually learned little about the Elite Ten Council despite its function was briefly explained before the story goes one. And the members, including the Alumnus and Hall of Famers, they are not reached even 5% of the group and the current roster (excludes Erina, Eizan and Satoshi who we know because they were introduced) made only limited appearances. Honestly, who else was/were in the current Elite Ten roster aside from the introduced three?
- Second, Tootsuki itself is Japan's #1 (if not the world) culinary school so the competition is very,very rare. Unless there are some rare schools (domestically or internationally) are either surpassing/equally to the Totsuki, it remained as the powerhouse culinary school.
-----> if Soma become 1 of the Ten then it will open another world to Soma and it will be another Arcs because Soma will aim to be the #1 Seat maybe after that the Head of Tootsuki will announce to all Seat members that there will be a competition and only the 10 Seats are eligible to compete
2. Tootsuki is #1 in Japan that's why we need another culinary school from another country
------> there will be another school or schools to challange Tootsuki i mean all the Alumni of Tootsuki pretty much dominate the culinary scene in other countries so maybe someone will challenge them in the "Future"
