AVID is an academic elective course comprised of over 200 students. Interested students complete an application and participate in the AVID interview process from which selections are made based on the AVID criteria and available spots.
AVID is designed to provide academic support to students "in the middle" in order to prepare them for eligibility to four-year colleges and universities. In the AVID elective, students focus on writing, reading, inquiry, collaboration and organization while engaging in higher level thinking, teambuilding and college exploration. AVID students also are assisted by AVID Tutors in facilitating small group tutorials with their peers.
