AVID I (9/10th grade)  helps freshmen and sophomores understand the demands of high school classes,find the balance needed to succeed in meeting the UC/CSU a-g course
           requirements,also gives an introduction to college and career exploration. 
AVID II (11th grade)  helps juniors prepare for college entrance testing and explore which colleges they will want to apply to through both college research projects and college field trips.
AVID Senior Seminar (UC/CSU approved for a-g credit: the universities give you credit for taking this class) focuses on applying to your colleges, establishing your area of study (major) prior to college, and professional direction AND resourcing money for college. Pre-requisite: previous enrollment in AVID lower-level courses. Co-requisite: Enrollment in at least one honors, Advanced Placement, or International Baccalaureate course.

AVID PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: AVID is a college readiness system which is an elective course taken during the school day, where students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and ask probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that help  prepare students to be successful in college. AVID targets students in the academic middle who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard with the appropriate support.

How AVID Works:
-teaches academic skills and behaviors not targeted in other classes

-provides intensive support with in-class tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships

-accelerates underachieving students into more rigorous courses

-creates a positive peer group for students

-develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
