ADVANCEMENT VIA INDIVIDUAL DETERMINATION (A.V.I.D.)
AVID Mission Statement
AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
What is AVID?
At Fort Collins High School, A.V.I.D. is an approved elective course taken during the school day. Students are selected to enroll in an A.V.I.D. class after an application process. For one class period a day, students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking and inquiry strategies, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make the college dream accessible to all students. A.V.I.D. students are required to enroll in at least one Honors or Advanced Placement® course, in addition to the A.V.I.D. elective.
