Technology is a vital part of your life. You use it for entertainment, communication, connecting with friends and researching.
So why would you not use it for education?
In the past few decades, the traditional education model has practically remained unchanged. Students in a brick and mortar school are well aware of this. There are still white boards, overhead projectors, TVs rolled in with VCRs. Maybe DVDs, but let’s not get too crazy here.
At Primavera, we believe today’s digital natives should learn in the environment where they’re most comfortable.
That’s why our curriculum, our instructional model, guidance department, even our students, they’re all different than what you’ll find at a traditional school. We’ve rethought learning, and we ask you to join us.
About Primavera’s Community
Our students are not just here to get a high school diploma online. Our students are the:
Rethink Your Education
It’s 2017. Shouldn’t you be able to learn in the way that’s best for you, on your schedule?
We certainly think so.
If you’re stuck in a traditional school and not enjoying it, it’s time to rethink your education. Starting with your curriculum.
Rethink Your Learning: Primavera Curriculum
Our curriculum is specifically designed for digital natives. It’s aligned to state and national standards, but it’s also packed with multimedia lessons so you’ll enjoy your learning.
Within each course, you will find videos, games, graphic novels and more to keep your brain engaged and focused. Learn more about our curriculum here.
Rethink How You’re Instructed: Primavera’s Teachers
Classrooms create a barrier in student-teacher communication. In the traditional school, teachers are limited to helping 30+ each class, then trying to make time after school for tutoring.
Online classrooms allow for more personalized instruction. Teachers have a few online class sessions per day, but the majority of their day is focused on student’s individual needs. Primavera instructors also have tools to easily see who is falling behind and proactively contact anyone needing extra support.
Should a student have a question, they can send an instant message, an email, a phone call or set up personal online tutoring sessions.
Oftentimes, our students report that they communicate more with our instructors than they ever did in their traditional school.

Rethink College & Career Preparation: Primavera’s Guidance Department
High school is not an ending. It’s merely a pathway to greater things. You don’t want to just get through high school, you want a college and career plan. That’s where Primavera’s guidance department comes into play.
Primavera’s guidance department is organized to get students college and career ready. Students aren’t assigned by their last name, they’re segmented according to individual needs.
Starting in 11th grade, students are assigned to a College & Career Specialist, who is an experienced, certified guidance counselor. They work with students individually to create an ECAP, answer any questions and assist with financial aid or other needs.
