Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID is not just another program…
at its heart,
AVID is a philosophy...
Hold students accountable to the highest standards,
provide academic and social support,
and they will rise to the challenge.
AVID prepares students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education by:
- Teaching skills and behaviors for academic success
- Providing intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creating a positive peer group for students
- Developing a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
