Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

AVID prepares students for college and future success in a global society. How? By helping students build skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. Students enroll in rigorous classes, such as Honors, Advanced Placement or College in the Schools, International Baccalaureate and in the AVID elective.
For one period a day, students learn skills, such as:
• How to organize schoolwork and study
• How to think critically and ask probing questions
• How to get academic help from peers (and college tutors)
• How to work effectively with teachers
• Students seeking to participate must participate in a screening/interview process to determine eligibility
AVID students participate in activities to enrich their learning, motivate them, and make college seem possible. They gain an improved self-image and become academic leaders who are prepared for college. All students can benefit from AVID, but its target is the least served students in the academic middle.
