AVID at O'Connor High School

AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination,  is an internationally recognized program designed to promote student achievement.   AVID is intended to serve students who might not already be on the "college track" but are willing to challenge themselves with advanced courses as preparation for attending a four-year university. 

Students take the AVID elective during the regular school day, and the curriculum each year provides valuable knowledge and skills for navigating rigorous high school classes, applying for admission to college, and becoming a successful college student. Our goal is for each student to be accepted into a four-year university and to graduate prepared to take on the challenges of college.
