Rialto USD Common AVID Application
Advancement Via Individual Determination, AVID, is a Kindergarten through twelfth grade program
that prepares students in the "academic middle" for admission to a four-year college or university.
Students take an AVID elective course throughout middle school and high school that provides
them with the skills needed to be successful in advancing academically with the ultimate goal
of attending college. For more than 25 years AVID has been instrumental in preparing students
for success in higher education.
The core component of the AVID Program is the AVID elective, which supports students as they
challenge themselves in more rigorous classes. Students are taught study skills, note taking, time
management, writing and research skills, while being immersed in a college-going culture. The
class also includes tutoring sessions that are led by college students and provide support for
success in the academically rigorous curriculum. Additionally, the AVID class provides access to
information about colleges and universities through field trips, guest speakers, college tutors,
scholarship opportunities and college admission requirement information.
AVID recruits students who are motivated to do well and who are serious about their academic
future. Based on grade point average and state test results, we feel that your child is an ideal
candidate for the AVID program and has been selected to participate in the recruitment process.
