AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) 

Avid is an elective class that helps students to become college, career, or military ready.  The AVID class encourages students to take rigorous courses and provides them with the support needed to help them excel in these courses and be ready for life after high school.  Regardless of their life circumstances, AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. Not only do they graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them.

The AVID Curriculum

The AVID curriculum, based on rigorous standards, was developed by middle and senior high school teachers in collaboration with college professors. It is driven by the WICOR method (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, and Organization, and Reading). AVID curriculum is used in AVID elective classes, in content-area classes in AVID schools, and AVID strategies are encouraged to be used schoolwide so that all students may benefit.
