What is AVID?
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a program that develops learning, study, and academic behavioral skills that are essential to success in rigorous coursework. In the AVID Elective class, students receive daily instruction and support to prepare them for college from a trained AVID Elective teacher.

- Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creates a positive peer group for students
- Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
AVID places these students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in their school’s toughest courses, such as Pre-AP and Advanced Placement. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams a reality.
