If you have all these items gathered and ready to go, the enrollment process will go much smoother.
Make Sure the School You Choose Will Work With Credits
By law, schools in Arizona must accept credits your child earns in an Arizona school. Primavera Online School accepts all Arizona earned school credits, and most credits earned from schools in other states. We also have enrollment advisors who will work with you every step of the way to make transferring a smooth process.
Prepare a Workspace for Your Child
A big difference between traditional and online school is that your child will no longer have a designated desk to sit at in a classroom. To help your student transition, create a school desk for them at home. Whether it’s a desk in your child’s bedroom, an office space in the house or even a kitchen table, it’s best to create a designated, organized workspace for your child. Head to this blog post to see workspace organization advice from Primavera instructors.
Students: Here’s how you can make switching to an online school simple
See how you can get involved
Students: Just because you aren’t in a classroom doesn’t mean you can’t meet new people and make friends. Online schools hold events and have clubs for you to join.
Primavera even has a prom and a monitored online community chat for you to easily connect with your classmates and make new friends. Learn more about Primavera student life here.
Get a planner
More flexibility requires more organization. Now that you can choose how to spend your day, we recommend you buy a planner or use an online scheduling app to help you plan your days out. Decide beforetime when you will complete schoolwork and when you are going to take breaks so that you can stay disciplined throughout the day.
Find ways to personalize your workspace
Adding your favorite snack, a picture of your family or another favorite trinket will make your environment more enjoyable as you work. Not to mention, these are all things you likely weren’t allowed to do at your old school, so take advantage and enjoy it! Here are a few tips from our students to get the creative juices flowing.
Talk to your teachers and advisors as much as you can
The instructors, advisors and counselors are readily available to help you–but don’t know how if you don’t ask. Any time you don’t understand a concept, don’t hesitate to send an instant message, email or phone call for personal support.
Switching to Online School midyear does not have to be difficult. In fact, Primavera has enrollment advisors you can call, or come see in person to make enrolling as simple as possible.
