The core component of the AVID Program is the AVID elective, which supports students as they challenge themselves in more rigorous classes. Students are taught study skills, note taking, time management, writing and research skills, while being immersed in a college-going culture. The class also includes tutoring sessions that are led by college students and provide support for success in the academically rigorous curriculum. Additionally, the AVID class provides access to information about colleges and universities through fieldtrips, guest speakers, college tutors, scholarship opportunities and college admission requirement information.
AVID recruits students who are motivated to do well and who are serious about their academic future. Based on grade point average and state test results, we feel that your child is an ideal candidate for the AVID program and has been selected to participate in the recruitment process.
