AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)
AVID is a course that targets beliefs and skills needed for student success in rigorous, college preparatory curriculum. The course is specifically for students who might not be thinking about college and through AVID we hope to see students set their sights on college and do what it takes to get there.
In the AVID classroom, some of the skills students learn are to use study strategies, work in collaborative groups, and write as part of the learning process. Students also increase their awareness of what it means to be college ready. AVID is available to seventh and eighth-grade students. There is an application and selection process in the spring.
