  • AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a student-centered approach.
  • AVID prepares all students for college, careers, and life.  
  • Students receive the additional academic, social, and emotional support that will help them succeed in their school’s most rigorous courses. 
  • The power of AVID is the ability to impact students in the AVID Elective class and all students throughout the campus.
  • AVID can have an effect on the entire school by providing classroom activities, teaching practices, and academic behaviors that can be incorporated into any classroom to improve engagement and success for all students.  
  • Regardless of students' life circumstances, AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. They graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them.
