What is AVID?

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a global nonprofit organization that operates with one guiding principle: hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge. AVID’s College Readiness System brings research-based curriculum and strategies to students each day that develop critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas.

 


 

AVID Elective

AVID Secondary starts with an elective class for one period a day, where students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and asking probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college seem attainable.  AVID ID Talks.jpg
