AVID

 
On this page (scroll down to the bottom of the page for attached documents) you will find documents that describe what AVID is all about, along with current binder grading sheet and tutorial request forms.  
AVID--Advancement Via Individual Determination--is a college prep elective program that was first developed in San Diego over 32 years ago and is now offered in 48 US states and several other countries including DOD schools, Australia, and Canada,  to serve those students "in the middle" who had a strong desire to go to college.  The typical AVID student may lack or have been deficient in the skills and support needed to be successful in not only being accepted into a 4-year university.  AVID teaches them to master those skills that would enable them to be proficient not only in rigorous high school courses, but in the advanced levels required in the college setting.  
 
AVID utilizes the WICOR curriculum skills--Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading--and incorporates the use of college tutors twice a week in a collaborative, collegial setting that allows students to explore difficult problems or questions they bring to the bi-weekly tutorial sessions in a non-threatening, collaborative environment that stresses problem-solving and higher level thinking skills.  
 
Additionally, the AVID elective class engages in team-building activities that foster collaboration and problem-solving, and takes two college field trips a year to expose students to the college enviroment.   We also teach students how to both speak and write in an articulate manner through a variety of public speaking activities.
