About Como Park Senior High

About Us

At Como Park Senior High School, we believe that all students BELONG, EXPLORE, ACHIEVE and SUCCEED TOGETHER.

Como Park Senior High School (CPSHS) is a school for all, and our school community will continue to expand and enhance some of the great opportunities that exist at CPSHS.  

The Academy of Finance (AOF) prepares students for careers in finance and business. The program also provides a paid internship during the students' Junior or Senior year at CPSHS. Students from any part of our school district who choose to enroll and participate in the Academy of Finance program will receive transportation to CPSHS.  

CPSHS has the most comprehensive Advanced Placement (AP) Program in St. Paul Public Schools. Our AP program, which offers more courses than any high school in St. Paul, prepares our students for college through rigorous and enlightening study, while allowing them to earn college credit. Como Park is extremely proud to have numerous AP Scholar Award recipients.  

CPSHS also offers College In The Schools (CIS), which is a concurrent enrollment program that serves high school students by increasing access to college learning. Students earn both high school and University of Minnesota credit for courses taken through CIS. CPSHS offers other accelerated and Pre Advanced Placement courses across the curriculum starting in 9th grade.  

AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) and PSEO (Post Secondary Educational Opportunities) are thriving at Como! AVID is a program to support students who are determined to go to college by developing their academic stamina. The PSEO (Post Secondary Educational Opportunities) program both challenges and prepares students for their future.  

Finally, in addition to all of these great options, Como also offers opportunities in the Arts and Music; Career and Technical Education; an award winning JROTC program, athletics, and a multitude of after school extracurricular activities and clubs!
