Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)
What is AVID?
Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a college-readiness program that prepares students kindergarten through 12th grade for college eligibility and success. AVID is for all students but targets those who are in the academic middle. It supports students and educators as they increase school-wide/district-wide learning and performance.
AVID is not just another program. At its heart, AVID is a philosophy:Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge.
