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.
