You should first check to make sure you do not have any vacuum leaks. Scan the computer and diagnose any service codes. If you do not have any codes, then you may just have to relearn the idle of the vehicle computer by warming the engine with the A/C off put in drive and let idle for a few minutes in gear. Then put it in park and let idle for a few minutes. Do the same with the A/C on and blower speed set to medium and coldest settings. Recheck the idle and see if it came down. If it did, then you are okay. If it is still high, then have a mechanic inspect the engine for idle control issues.
