AVID: Advancement Via Individual Determination

  • AVID is an academic, elective program designed to provide support to students who are in the “academic middle." AVID prepares students to enter and be successful in college through career and college exploration.

    During each AVID class, students receive instruction in:

    • reading/writing across the curriculum
    • note and test-taking strategies
    • study skills
    • organization and
    • time management

    The AVID elective is currently being offered to students in grades 6 through 12. AVID students apply to be in the program and interview with teachers before being accepted into the program.

    AVID students want to work hard to become more successful, committing themselves to a variety of obligations-including good attendance, appropriate behavior, and on average, 1-2 hours of homework per night.
