  • What happens in AVID?

    In our classes, we will learn to take college-level notes (Cornell notes), organize materials, improve time management, work on test-taking skills, improve writing skills, and many more strategies.  Part of our learning will take place in small tutoring groups, assisted by college students to help you improve your understanding of your course work.  We will also tour colleges, hear guest speakers, explore college opportunities, volunteer for community service, and fundraise.

    If I am interested, what do I have to do?
