What is AVID?
AVID Stands for "Advancement Via Individual Determination"

AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID students are bright students who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. AVID will challenge students to succeed in their rigorous classes.

What is the AVID elective?
For one period within the regular school day, AVID students learn organization and study skills, work on critical thinking and ask probing questions. AVID students get academic help from peers and cross‐trained tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college attainable.

AVID students are required to carry and maintain a 3-inch binder in which materials from all academic classes are kept.

AVID is a four year program in which students are supported to reach their college goals.

As leaders in our school, AVID students are held to the highest academic and behavioral standards. Not only are they expected to maintain good academic standing in challenging classes, but they must also exhibit the highest standards of behavior.
