  • Mission Statement

    AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

    AVID is:

    • an acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.
    • an in-school academic support program for grades 7-12 that prepares students for college eligibility and success
    • an elective class that meets during the regular school day for all students, but it targets those in the academic middle implemented both school-wide and district-wide.

    Who is an AVID student?

    Students in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support. Sometimes these students have yet to realize their full academic potential. During the identification process, a number of criteria are considered, including:

    • Grades
    • Standardized Test Scores
    • Citizenship
    • Attendance
    • Desire and Determination
