Accreditation / NCAA

Primavera is accredited and aligned to state and national standards. A high school diploma earned from Primavera holds the same value as diplomas from traditional schools and is recognized by universities, colleges and employers nationwide.


Primavera receives its accreditation through Cognia, a globally renowned organization. Earning a Cognia certificate involves an extensive review of the school’s organizational procedures, academic strategies, 目标, improvements and stakeholder communication process.

Due to Primavera’s continued commitment to the Cognia (formerly AdvancED) Standards, Assurances and Policies, our accreditation term is extended through June 30, 2024.

According to Dr. Mark Elgart, President of AdvancEd (Cognia), “Primavera Online High School is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating their strong commitment to continuous improvement.”

Primavera is one of the few online high schools in the country to receive NCAA approval due to our constant teacher-student interaction and support.

NCAA Student Success Story

Meghan Lyall

“I could not have pursued my tennis career the way I did without attending high school online. I was able to do all the traveling and pursue any opportunities that came my way because I could take my school with me anywhere I went. Primavera offered me the flexibility I needed, but the easily accessible help I got from my teachers is really what benefitted me the most.”
