Congratulations to the Class of 2019.

"AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society."

"Our nation’s schools are full of students who possess a desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard, but many of them do not truly have the opportunity to be college-ready. These are often the students who will be the first in their families to attend college and are from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. AVID Secondary equips teachers and schools with what they need to help these students succeed on a path to college and career success."

"International Baccalaureate (IB), by definition, provides educational standards and practices for philosophy, organization, and curriculum that can create and sustain authentic global learning communities.

Like AVID, the IB curriculum is inquiry-based and aims to produce students who are college- and career-ready. Both AVID and IB implementations are directed toward generating a culture shift to college readiness for every student. Many districts nationwide have implemented both programs simultaneously in order to maximize the effect of each."
