Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a college-readiness system that prepares students in kindergarten through 12th grade for college eligibility and success. We focus on best practices that will help push all of our students.
AVID offers a variety of classroom activities, lesson plans, professional learning videos, and timely articles that are relevant to students. These tools help educators implement and refine instructional practices. They also help educators provide the key academic and social supports students need to thrive.
AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
Applying for AVID Elective
Families of students in middle school and high school who are being offered an opportunity to be in the AVID class receive a letter inviting them to apply to be in the AVID Elective.
Our AVID parents/guardians are an important part of our AVID team. Parents are provided information and support through various means so they can encourage and support their children to succeed. This way, the learning doesn't stop at school at the end of the school day but continues at home. We communicate with our AVID parents and guardians regularly. Family events and other opportunities for parent involvement are also offered throughout the year.
