To those of you looking to catch up or get ahead on credits this summer, Primavera Online 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.
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 Instead of having to read an outdated, boring textbook, we keep you engaged through our 100% online, award-winning curriculum with practice workbooks, videos, animated lessons and much more to help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.
For more information on how to contact your teachers at Primavera, check out our previous blog post.
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 25 hours per week, per course you’re expected to complete, you are free to work on your courses on your schedule.
That’s the beauty of a 100% online school!
5. Will I still get to interact with classmates?
Of course! At Primavera, there are several opportunities to connect with your classmates. With online class discussions and school events, you can make friends fast at Primavera.
6. How long do online summer school courses last?
Primavera’s tuition-free summer school is just four weeks long! That means you’ll be able to knock out a course and still have time to enjoy your summer.

Do you guys send transcripts to the high school or saying that we’ve completed that course? Or will I need to take a test at my high school so they can see that I can officially get that credit? Or how does it work for the high school to see that I’ve finished that credit
So can I receive credit full credit for a class that takes 1 year like algebra 1? That starts off with .5 than 1 in 10th grade

Yep! 🙂 Credits will transfer. We recommend reading this article for more information.
I’m thinking about taking a class through Primavera’s online summer school to make room in my schedule for next year. I was told that in order to receive credit for the class I will still need to take the district final at my high school and that Primavera’s online course doesn’t align with the material on that test. Is it true that I have to take my district final to receive credit from Primavera? How will that test affect my getting credit for the course?

Can you still enroll for summer school ?
My son is being held back due to failing the entirety of his sixth grade year. If I enroll him for both sessions of summer school would he be able to successfully move on to the seventh grade in the fall and get back on track?
So say I’m someone who gets work done fast(its still good work), is it possible to finish the class before the 4 weeks?
Hi, Tad. We wouldn’t say it’s impossible, but it is certainly very rare, considering the class is already considerably accelerated. 🙂

So I am a middle school student on primavera, and I ended up falling behind a grade in school, so this year I was supposed to be in 8th grade but I am in 7th grade currently, I originaly had a plan to return to public school once I was in high school, but due to the fact that I have fallen a grade behind my plan to return to public school isnt really going as I had wanted , so I have a few questions, so since I wanted to go to regular high school next year in fall and I want to catch up doing primavera before then so I wanted to know what can I do and what options do I have on primavera to catch up on everything that I have missed before next fall , so that I can go to high school the way I wanted to..

Hello, at my school there was a Pre-AP chemistry course. In order to apply for a certain scholarship, you need to have no D’s on your transcript. I only have a D for one semester. Would I be able to retake just a second semester of chemistry instead of doing it all over again? Would this replace the grade on my transcript ? Thank you 🙂

What is the difference between doing online schooling vs getting a GED. My son doesn’t do to well in a classroom setting?
What is the max amount of courses we can take during the summer?
Hi, Mya. You can take up to two courses during the summer. If you’re in need of more credit recovery, give us a call at 480.456.6678 to see if we can give you some more specific options.
I see that the 4 week class starts on June 1st. We will be on vacation the last week in May. We planned it that way so our kids could attend summer school believing it would start on June 6th as that is the start day for high schools. Will there be another 4 week session during the summer or can students enroll for June 1st and get caught up on the 3 days that they miss? Also, we are at a point where we won’t know if they will pass the class or not. Finals are not until May 22nd and enrollment starts before that date. Will I be able to enroll my kids and pull out if they end up passing the class?
Hi, Liz. Yes, you can pull from the course if it turns out your student doesn’t need summer school, that way, you’re enrolled by the deadline (May 20) if you need it! As for missing the first three days, it would be best to talk to an enrollment advisor at 480.456.6678 so they can give you a more specific answer. Best of luck!
My son would not be able to enroll in the June Summer School session because of a trip during the first week. What are the other sessions available?
Hi, Penny. We only have the one Summer School session available, but your son is welcome to enroll with us part time (or full time) to catch up on credits. Thanks! 🙂
I see that the deadline for summer courses that start on June 1st was on May 20th but documents are officially due on the 25th. We registered on the 22nd, not knowing that the deadline had passed. Are we still eligible for enrollment? If we still want to register our student for classes over the summer and we are no longer eligible for the classes starting on June 1st, what other options do we have?
Hi, Angel. Definitely give our enrollment advisors a call at 480.530.0632. Likely, they will be able to work with you to get you enrolled for the June 1 course!
Can I finish the 4week course faster if I finish my pro faster
