You decide to take a break, so you head to the couch or check your phone. Just for a bit.
Suddenly, you feel the burning stare.
Yep, mom’s caught you. Has it really been that long? What were you supposed to do again?
Staying on task in today’s world when there are so many other ways to be entertained is no easy undertaking.
And then when you are expected to focus on something that’s not usually well-loved—like, say, homework—your job becomes particularly difficult.
Should we really blame the teen, though, when the curriculum is so often outdated or filled with text-heavy PDFs? Really, that’s not an issue of an ‘attention-spanless’ generation, that’s simply boring. Period.
That’s why we’ve partnered with StrongMind to provide the best possible online education. StrongMind curriculum is aligned to national and state standards, but courses were actually developed in this decade by former educators who understand the modern-day student.
Available to 6–12th grade students, here’s what you can expect.
Award-winning multimedia designed for digital natives
As a fellow student, you know all too well that you’re not going to spend the necessary time in their studies if you’re not enjoying it.
That’s why we provide a curriculum that’s been newly re-designed for today’s learners. Courses are not just aligned and accredited, they’re actually backward designed.
In other words, the curriculum developers (who are former educators themselves) didn’t just edit some content to so it passes the standards test. They actually scrapped everything, looked at the standards first, and developed new content around it.
More importantly, courses are packed with award-winning multimedia.
There are animated videos, real-life videos, graphic novels and interactive content throughout to help the students grasp concepts in a way they’ll actually enjoy.
This method of engaging the learner with interactive multimedia courses is proven. In fact, a recent study from StrongMind is showing percentage increases in grades among students using this curriculum.

The flipped classroom method–How it provides more individualized attention
It’s kind of a funny term. But essentially, flipped classroom means working the opposite way of a traditional class.
In the brick-and-mortar traditional setting, a teacher usually presents the topic in class, then assigns homework.
Our students start with the homework first. Here’s why:
When students log in, read material and watch videos, it helps them start to understand concepts. Then they go through workbooks, aka homework.
Our system gathers data from the workbooks and sends it to the teacher. The teacher then analyzes and determines strengths and weak spots where their students need extra help.
That way, once it’s time for the instructors to teach, they don’t go in blind. They know exactly what areas to focus on because they’re better equipped with data.
Speaking of individualized attention….
Every teacher at Primavera is highly qualified and state certified. They are solely dedicated to helping our students succeed. Teachers are available via emails, messages and live online sessions to answer questions individually on homework.
Whether it’s an elective course or a more complex course like math, the added personalized support is the same.
Welcome to the 21st Century, education. We’ve missed you.
