AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)
What is AVID?
AVID is not just another program…
at its heart,
Hold students accountable to the highest standards,
provide academic and social support,
and they will rise to the challenge.
What Does AVID DO?
- Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
- Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creates a positive peer group for students
- Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
As a result, policymakers and educators now consider AVID's mission to be an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap, making college access and success available to all students.
