Advancement Via Individual Determination, AVID, is a K-12 program that prepares students typically categorized in the academic middle for admission to a four-year college or university.  Students take an AVID elective course throughout middle/high school that provides them with the skills needed to be successful in their future colleges and careers. 
            The core component of the AVID Program is the AVID elective class, which supports study skills, focused on note-taking, time management, writing and research skills, while being immersed in a college-going culture.  The AVID elective provides weekly tutoring sessions that are led by college students/peer tutors that provide support for success in the academically rigorous course curriculum.
             Additionally, the AVID class provides access to information about colleges and universities through annual college field trips, guest speakers, college tutors, SAT practice and testing, scholarship opportunities and college admission requirement information. 
    AVID recruits students who are motivated to do well and who are serious about their academic future. 
            Admission is primarily based on grade point average, state test performance, behavioral records, attendance records, teacher recommendation and an interview process.  If you feel that you or your student would benefit and take advantage of this program, we encourage you to apply.  Please complete the online application which requests information about your background and family to help us better know you and your circumstances.
