A student's admission is based upon an appropriate SAT/ACT scoreS and GPA .
"A - G" COURSE REQUIREMENTS
GPA is calculated using only those courses listed in the "A-G" course requirements in which a grade of "C" or better was earned in grades 10, 11, and 12. Courses designated with a "P" meet the entrance requirements for most colleges and universities.
College bound students who receive a grade of "D" in college preparatory subjects are encouraged to repeat the course. A "D" grade is not acceptable for college entrance. Rialto Unified School District does not allow credit for repeating a course in which a passing grade of "A, B, C, or D" has been earned, unless designated by "[rc]" in the registration handbook.

For many scholarships and entrance to most colleges, the College Entrance Examination Boards (SAT) or American College Test is required. Registration applications and dates are available in the Counseling Center of the high school. These tests may be taken at the close of the junior year (strongly recommended and required by some colleges), or in October of the senior year, or both. The tests may be taken as often as desired. It is also advisable for a junior to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) for the experience. This is usually given in October each year.
