AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is an in-school academic support program that prepares students for college eligibility and success. AVID targets students in the academic middle range. Students are not only enrolled in their school’s most rigorous classes, such as honors and Advanced Placement, but they are also enrolled in the AVID elective. In this class, they learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and how to ask probing questions, get academic help from peers and tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make college attainable.
AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
The goal of AVID is to ensure that ALL students, and most especially the least served students who are in the middle:
AVID’s systemic approach is designed to support students and educators as they increase schoolwide/districtwide learning and performance.
The AVID student must have “determination,” the determination to succeed in the demanding course requirements of four year colleges and universities.
