AVID’s Mission:
Close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. It is designed to ensure all students, especially the least served students who are in the academic middle to:
* Succeed in rigorous curriculum
* Complete a rigorous college preparatory path
* Enter activities of the school
* Enroll in college
* Become educated and responsible participants and leaders in their communities and our society

What AVID Is:
* AVID is for middle to upper middle academic students. These students have the potential for Honors and AP (Advanced Placement) work but need to develop the skills needed to be successful in rigorous courses.
* AVID combines rigor with support that includes the student's individual determination and the support of teachers, other AVID students and their families and AVID tutors.
* Students must maintain 2.0 or higher GPA throughout the school year.

Why AVID Works: 
* Places AVID students in rigorous curriculum and gives them the support to achieve
* Provides a team of students for positive peer identification
* Redefines the teacher’s role as that of student advocate
* Transforms schools by creating a college-going culture throughout an entire school, impacting all students
