AVID: Advancement Via Individual Determination

The AVID program is an academic support program designed to raise the achievement of middle school and high school students. This college readiness system focuses on underserved students in middle range academic performance. By enrolling students in a unique AVID elective course and providing tutor support, AVID aims to challenge students so that they are prepared for college success. AVID instruction emphasizes writing, inquiry, collaboration, and reading directed toward developing students’ higher-level thinking skills. AVID challenges students to take the next step in academic rigor and enroll in honors and Advanced Placement courses. As AVID becomes increasingly integrated into a school’s instructional system, faculty realize the capacity of all students to become critical thinkers and academic achievers.
