Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a year-long elective class offering a rigorous curriculum to promote student achievement. AVID teaches college and career readiness skills and is available to all students but especially those who would be first-generation college students.

Four key components of the program:

  • Rigorous instruction in critical reading, writing, inquiry, collaboration, and organizational skills
  • Tutorial group support
  • College and career exploration and assistance in the application process
  • AVID “Family”

The goal of AVID is for students to challenge themselves with a rigorous curriculum, to join school activities, participate in volunteer and community service opportunities, and help them to achieve their post-secondary goals. AVID students attend school regularly, are prepared for class, are self-motivated, and are willing and determined to work hard. AVID students learn a variety of focused note-taking strategies, refine test preparation skills, learn time management and organizational strategies, and work effectively in study groups in order to reach high levels of academic and personal success throughout their high school experience.
