Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists provides advanced courses to students seeking more rigorous academic expectations and opportunities for learning.

The structure, content, processes, and assessments associated with advanced courses combine with inspired instruction and academically motivated students to create a dynamic, interactive environment that fosters greater intellectual development.

Advanced courses show students how to discover, develop, evaluate, argue, test, compare, and apply content knowledge. Students in advanced courses must display high-quality academic performance as they continually engage in robust, challenging, and enriching experiences.

In addition to advanced courses, SPCPA also offers AP (Advanced Placement) courses and the opportunity for our students to participate in PSEO courses. AP and PSEO courses provide students with opportunities to earn college credits while still in high school.
