AVID is a national college-preparatory program for students whose academic performance in their classes is average, or even below average. With additional support and instruction, AVID students have the potential and determination to perform above average, and to have a successful experience in more challenging college prep curriculum including AP and Honors courses. Many AVID students are from groups that are underrepresented at the college level — students who will be the first in their family to attend college, from families of color, or from low income families. The AVID elective class provides instruction in academic skills essential for college-readiness including writing, inquiry, note taking, reading, collaboration, communicating with teachers, time management, and accessing rigorous coursework. The AVID teacher will also monitor and support students’ progress in all their classes.
