Community of Peace Academy is a great school! We are a public charter school that was founded in 1995. The vision of the school is to educate the whole person---mind, body and will---for peace, justice, freedom, compassion, wholeness and fullness of life for all. We serve a diverse population, preschool to grade 12, in St. Paul, MN. This year are celebrating our 15 years anniversary!

I like this school! Unlike the other schools, every student and teacher are really close with one another. One student I really like is Shenue Yang. He was a great friend that was really friendly. I would recommend this school because of their great academics, friendly and family like environment, small class sizes, and most of all the caring teachers that really care for every students success.

CPA is a small neighborhood school which embraces each and every student as if everyone was a member of the family. Every student is a valued member of the community and peace making is the atmosphere of the classrooms and hallways. The testing scores are outstanding, reflecting the excellant teaching skills as well as the student satifaction. The CPA choir excels beyond any I've heard in a school system. The success of this school is also a reflection of the commitment to parent involvement, which is far above the norm. CPA is the equivalent of a tuition free private school and IS the best kept secret in St. Paul.

Community of Peace Accademy is an excellent school. Two of my three children attend CPA, and they are both very advanced for their ages. My 8 year old second grader is reading at a fifth grade level, and my 6 year old kindergardener is well at the top of his class. I would reccomend this school to anyone that is able to enroll their children. Just make sure you start them in Kindergarden, for there is quite a long waiting list, as they are a National School of Character.
