Advancement Via Individual Determination

    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 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 high school/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 and college tutors.
    AVID recruits students who are motivated to do well and who are serious about their academic future. 
    This school year, 2023-2024, we have expanded our AVID classes to accommodate more than 300 students.
