What AVID Is Not

It can be challenging to clearly define the AVID program. But the AVID program is definitely not:

  • A remedial course

  • A study hall

  • An intervention program

AVID is designed to support students who are pursuing success by providing additional skills and a family environment to reach their greatest potential.
