How You Can Graduate Early With Primavera Online High School

At Primavera, we believe in providing students with a personalized educational experience. That’s why we work individually with our students to help them achieve their academic goals. If you are a student looking to graduate early, Primavera Online High School could be a great option for you.

Obtaining your diploma earlier than the standard four years is no easy task; it will take a lot of hard work. However, it is possible with Primavera, and we’ll show you how below.

How to Graduate Early With Primavera Online High School

Why are you more likely to graduate early with Primavera than other schools?

How does Primavera make graduating early more doable than traditional high schools? The answer: six-week blocks.

Primavera courses are divided into two courses every six weeks (three blocks adds up to the traditional 18-week semester). Instead of juggling six courses at once, our students focus on just two courses at a time.

This is a great model for reducing stress and improving retention. It is also a great model for helping students accelerate their graduation progress, as students can add on an additional course each block.

By successfully completing three courses every six weeks, you can earn three extra credits (that’s six semester-long courses) per school year–and that’s without having to attend summer school!

How do I get started?

When you enroll full-time with Primavera, you will start with the standard two courses every six weeks. This is to ensure that the workload is not too much for you.

Once you complete a block with good grades, reach out to your guidance counselor, and let them know you would like to add on courses to graduate early. Once he or she approves, you will work with an enrollment advisor to add on the extra courses, and then you’re all set! Here are the steps again:

  • Step 1: Enroll with Primavera. See how to enroll HERE.
  • Step 2: Successfully complete one block with Primavera
  • Step 3: Get approval from guidance counselor to add on courses
  • Step 4: Work with an enrollment advisor to add on the extra course

What if I want to stay at my school? Can I still graduate early with Primavera?

Yes! Primavera allows for concurrent enrollment, or enrolling part-time with Primavera while still attending your current school.

Before you enroll concurrently with Primavera, please read this blog post about transferring credits.

Steps for Getting Ahead With Primavera While Attending Your School

1. Head to, or call us at 480.405.2703 to get started

2. Make sure our enrollment advisor knows you want to enroll part-time

3. Work with your guidance counselor to select the correct courses

4. Once enrolled, you can take one Primavera class every six weeks.

Again, before applying for Primavera, please check with your current school’s guidance counselor to make sure they will accept our credits as ‘core’ credits. You can learn more here.

Each year, hundreds of Primavera students graduate up to a full year early! While it takes a lot of hard work, it can open up a world of new opportunities.

But don’t just take our word for it; check out the testimonials below from students who graduated early with Primavera:

Early Graduate Student Testimonials

“I think the opportunity to graduate early makes it possible to graduate college early and get started on things I want to do. Being younger, you get a different outlook than people who are graduating college later in their lives.” – Jayde Kolb, early Primavera graduate, student at Grand Canyon University.

“With Primavera, I am graduating almost a year early! This is allowing me to do so many things…Primavera helps me succeed by providing me with a quality, flexible education. Switching to online school was the best decision of my life and I have no regrets.” – Taylor Treloar, early Primavera graduate

      Hi Fernando. Great question!:) We have classes starting every other Monday. If you applied today and get your documents in on time, you could start courses by February 20. Full-time students take two courses every six weeks, and each course counts for a semester credit. This means by May 30–assuming you pass all courses–you could finish six courses. You can get started here, or give us a call at 480.456.6678, option 1.

    I am going into the 10th grade in Fall 2018 and I already have 11 credits due to being dual enrolled. My current school has told me I am not able to graduate early at the end of my 10th grade year that I would have to complete a class my junior year in order to graduate. I saw in an earlier post of yours that Primavera has graduated many students in 10 grade. Is this true?
