Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID's ultimate goal is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness, and success in our global society. AVID will help its students develop by honing in on a myriad of skills. Our vehicle to student success is WICOR. WICOR philosophy stands for writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading. AVID students will engage is many lessons, and motivational and enrichment activities in which they will practice all aspects of WICOR. Students will learn how to be well organized, study effectively, and think critically throughout the rigorous program so to help make college attainable. Additionally, because AVID is a college readiness program, we also are guests to guided college tours. Whether it be a UC, Cal State or city colleges, students will get to learn about various colleges, and learn what it takes to be a successful college student and prepare for their dream career.
Throughout this AVID page, you will read and view images of content that perfectly illustrates the practice of WICOR. Have fun navigating the page!
