• AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

  • AVID is a full year college readiness course that focuses on students who are typically in the academic middle. These students have the potential and desire to complete a rigorous curriculum, but they may have never had the opportunity to participate or succeed in Honors classes. With the help of an AVID elective class, these students learn organizational skills and good study habits, as well as how to incorporate critical thinking and higher level reading strategies into their studies. They are enrolled in at least one Honors class, along with the AVID class and their other core classes. By raising expectations for these students, the AVID program provides access and support in challenging college preparatory classes thereby laying the foundation for students to attend college and become leaders and responsible citizens in our society.
