AVID's Mission

The mission of AVID is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

What is AVID?

AVID, Advancement via Individual Determination, is a school-wide college readiness support system that will work hand-in-hand with the core content courses to prepare students for challenging, rigorous work. In AVID, students engage in writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading strategies to help them master rigorous academic content. High expectations are paired with strategies for success (such as note taking, time management, organization and goal setting) and in-class tutorial sessions so that students excel in advanced courses and are prepared for the rigors of university work.

Students must apply to be in AVID. AVID Site Teams at each campus review student applications and interview students to determine students who meet the expectations and would benefit the most from the class. Participation in AVID is a high honor. Students who are interested in AVID should contact Mrs. Salazar, AVID Coordinator.
