To those of you looking to catch up or get ahead on credits this summer, Primavera Online High School is the place to be! If you’ve never taken an online summer school course before, we’re sure you have lots of questions. That’s why we’ve gathered the six most commonly asked questions and answered them all right here in this post! Check them out below.
1. How much will an online summer school course cost me?
We often hear this question, and the answer is two great words: tuition free! Because Primavera is a year-round public charter school, we offer all our courses (even summer) completely tuition free. Summer school is for all 9–12th grade Arizona students.
2. What will my class look like?
At Primavera, you can say goodbye to spending long days stuck in a stuffy classroom all summer long. Instead, enjoy the comfort of your home or get some fresh air at a coffee shop! As long as you have a laptop and an internet connection, you can study wherever you want.
Plus, our courses are designed specifically for you! Instead of having to read an outdated, boring textbook, we keep you engaged through our 100% online, award-winning curriculum with practice workbooks, videos, animated lessons and much more to help you get excited about learning!
3. How do I communicate with my teachers?
Primavera has highly-qualified, state-certified instructors who are dedicated to helping our students get their diplomas. You will be able to contact your teachers via email, phone calls and chat messages within our Parent Student Portal (PSP). In many cases, our students report that they communicate with their teachers more here than in a traditional school setting.

4. I’m working a summer job; can Primavera work with my schedule?
Absolutely! In fact, we’re probably your best option for summer school! While there will be about 15 hours of schoolwork you’re expected to complete each week, you are free to work on your courses on your schedule.
That’s the beauty of a 100% online high school!
5. Will I still get to interact with classmates?
Of course! At Primavera, there are several opportunities to connect with your classmates. You will be able to chat with students in classroom discussions as well as in the community page of our Parent Student Portal, attend monthly school events and even win tickets to our exclusive Primavera Online High School Lounge at Live 101.5!

6. How long do online summer school courses last?
Primavera’s tuition free summer school courses are just four weeks long! That means you’ll be able to knock out a course and still have time to enjoy your summer.
