AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

  • What is AVID?

    AVID is not just another program
    at its heart,

    AVID is a philosophy

    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.
