Teacher recommendations, middle school behavior records, transcripts, essay, & test scores all play a significant role in the consideration process.

Accepted students will see AVID added to their fall course schedules in their Aeries Portal. Please note that we cannot accept all applicants.

However, students not accepted due to behavior infractions can be admitted as sophomores if they have an infraction free and academically successful freshman year.
