Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program
What is AVID?
AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
AVID incorporates proven instructional strategies and content area best practices to insure that all students can experience academic success. AVID places students in college readiness courses. The program provides intensive support with an elective class, helpful tutors, positive peer groups, and AVID-trained instructors. AVID strives to develop the habits and behaviors needed to succeed. In addition, students participate in various enrichment and motivational activities throughout the year to guide them towards their dream of attending college.
Who is the AVID student?
AVID targets students who are capable to completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential. Potential AVID participants much complete an application process. Once selected, students will be enrolled in an AVID elective class with emphasis on WICOR strategies (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading).
