AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and is an accelerated academic encore course comprised of over 100 students. Interested students apply 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 instruction and support to students “in the middle” in order to prepare them for eligibility to attend four-year colleges and universities. During the AVID elective, students focus on writing, reading, inquiry, collaboration and organization while engaging in higher level thinking, teambuilding and college/career exploration. AVID students are mentored on their academic strengths and weaknesses throughout the year and facilitate small group tutorials with their peers.
