• AVID Proven Achievement. Lifelong Advantage. Figure of a person throwing a graduation cap in the air. Program Overview

    AVID is an accelerated academic encore course comprised of over 120 OMMS 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 support to students “in the middle” in order to prepare them for eligibility to four-year colleges and universities. During the AVID elective, students focus on writing, reading, inquiry, collaboration and organization while engaging in higher level thinking, relational capacity and college exploration. AVID students are mentored on their academic strengths and weaknesses and facilitate small group tutorials with their peers. 

    Parents and guardians are always welcome to assist in the AVID classroom. We are always looking for tutors for our AVID Tutorials and chaperones for our college tours and field trips.
