Admissions Timeline
AVID is a full-year academic elective. AVID is available in grades 6-12. The application and interview process for an academic year generally occurs in February and March of the previous academic year; however, school programs may accept students midway through the year if the program is not fully enrolled. For example, 7th-graders who want to join AVID in 8th grade should apply in February of their 7th-grade year. If a student is already an 8th-grader and wishes to join AVID, the student may apply to join AVID midway through the 8th-grade year (if there are openings in the course), or the student may apply in February of their 8th-grade year to join AVID at the beginning of their 9th-grade year. 
Application Instructions
To apply, students may request AVID applications from the counseling center of Mt. Jordan Middle School, Eastmont Middle School or Jordan High School. (Currently, these are the three schools with AVID programs in Canyons School District.) If students already attend one of these schools they must submit their completed applications to their assigned school counselor. If students are applying to join AVID at a school they have not previously attended, they may submit the AVID application to the counseling center of the school they plan to attend. Applicants to the program will be contacted by an AVID teacher who will set up an interview. After students are interviewed, they will be notified of the program's admission decision.
