WHAT IS AVID?
AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an academic program designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The target AVID student is a student who has a strong desire to attend a four-year university and may or may not have an engraved foundation for success. AVID students are bright students who may be underachieving, or are first generation college students who could benefit from additional guidance and support. The AVID elective is a class that provides social and academic support as well as academic monitoring and tutoring. The class focuses on reading and writing skills, organizational skills, Socratic questioning skills and collaborative learning skills. Students have access to college-age tutors and take part in test preparation lessons to increase their performance in rigorous classes as well as standardized exams, such as the SAT and ACT.
