What is AVID?

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It is an academic support program designed for mid-level students who are willing to work hard and attempt courses in the Honors and Advanced Placement programs in order to prepare for the rigors of a 4-year college. Most, but not all, AVID students are one or more of the following: The first in their families to go to college; from a low-income household; of a population historically under-served in 4-year colleges; or dealing with other special circumstances. 

In the AVID elective class, students will develop their writing and critical reading skills, as well as further their abilities to think critically and use inquiry to problem solve. They will receive academic support in their bi-weekly tutorial sessions and will be required to take sufficient notes in their core classes. Field trips to college campuses, motivational speakers, and team-building activities are also part of the program.

To apply, students should complete the attached application, solicit a teacher recommendation, have a GPA between 2.5 and 3.5, and have no/few behavior and/or attendance issues.
