We construct a superconformal theory of higher spin fields in a space-time of dimension D = 2 + 1. The construction relies on the infinite-dimensional superalgebra shsc(N | 3) with the superconformal algebra osp(N | 4) as a maximal finite-dimensional subalgebra. The invariant Chern-Simons action for the higher spin superconformal theory is an extension of the usual conformal supergravity action for particles with maximal spin two. The quantization was carried out and the generating functional of the Green functions was obtained.
