Primavera Online High School is a publicly funded charter school serving grades 6-12 in Arizona. The school was founded in 2001 and was made possible by a program established by the Arizona Legislature in 1998. It is the fastest-growing online high school in the state.[citation needed]

Primavera Online High School is accredited by AdvancED.[1] There are no fees for students aged 14–22, and only students 22 or younger are accepted.[2]

Two types of students attend Primavera: full-time and concurrent-enrolled. Primavera offers two types of diplomas. The standard diploma requires 22 credits while the advanced scholastic diploma requires 23 credits and has a stronger emphasis on math, science, and foreign languages.

Primavera has open enrollment throughout the year, and offers block scheduling. Students take two courses for each six-week block. Each course equals one half credit. All teachers are certified and are required to stay in constant contact with each student throughout the course.

This is an alternative to traditional high school that still supplies the same type of diploma and credit.
