Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)
At Silverado, AVID is an elective course taken for one class period a day. The class helps students develop organizational and critical thinking skills, fosters positive working relationships with peers and college tutors, and allows students to participate in motivational activities that make college seem more attainable. Students are expected to work hard, achieve success in rigorous courses, and utilize support offered by the AVID Elective Class. Silverado High School AVID goals are to develop leaders and role models, transforming fixed mindsets into growth mindsets. Through AVID, Silverado High School wants to help our students become success-oriented as they continue their education in college, or enter the workforce.
