Graduation Requirements

group of female graduates

To receive an AdvancEd-accredited high school diploma, students graduating in 2017 need to earn 22 credits. We recommend that students preparing for a university should consider additional coursework to meet university admissions requirements.

Primavera also offers individual courses. This is the perfect solution for students who just need a few more credits to graduate, or those wanting to accelerate their learning. All courses are AdvancEd-accredited and transfer to most other Arizona High Schools.

Primavera offers a variety of programs that will help students meet their goals, from preparing to attend college to beginning a career. Students who wish to enlist in the military should work with our guidance department and contact their local recruiting office prior to enrollment.

Students needing help deciding which program is the best fit should contact one of our Enrollment Advisors at 480.405.2703.
