Who We Are:
creative arts high school
Creative Arts High School is a unique Saint Paul Public School. Because we are small, we have achieved a remarkably warm and friendly climate. Students choose CAHS because they have a strong desire to pursue their own artistic visions. Through their performance, visual and literary art classes, students work with teachers who are practicing artists themselves. Our academic teachers have earned, or are in the process of earning, their master degrees. For more than eight years, CAHS staff have been developing classes that are both challenging and engaging. Consequently, our graduates are well prepared for college and for life.
Students at CAHS have many memories to take with them when they graduate. There are numerous evening events, including art shows, performances, open mics, picnics and the prom. We've traveled to Europe, Central America, and to the Smithsonian Institute and the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. Our students have been honored for their accomplishments by receiving scholarships and by winning numerous awards sponsored by the Ordway, St. Paul Jaycees, and the Minnesota College of Art and Design. As a "Rights Site," we work in collaboration with Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights. We are a school on the move! Under the new leadership of Dr. Valerie Littles-Butler, Principal of CAHS, we will continue to be a "Community of Artists Learning and Growing Together."
