AVID is an academic encore class that meets during the school day on either an A day or B day. 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 a national program offered in grades 6-12 in Anne Arundel County. This program prepares students in the academic middle for college and career readiness. AVID students are students who are capable of completing a college-prep curriculum but are falling short of their potential. The core component is the AVID elective, which supports students as they tackle the most rigourous classes. AVID's teaching strategies, curriculum and trainings are not only used in the AVID elective class, but by teachers school wide.
During the AVID elective, students focus on writing, reading, inquiry, collaboration and organization while engaging in higher level thinking, teambuilding and college exploration. AVID students are mentored on their academic strengths and weaknesses throughout the week and facilitate small group tutorials with their peers.
