AVID Recruitment for 2019-2020

Posted by Kayla Phillips on 1/11/2019 6:15:00 AM



The AVID Elective is a 6th through 12th grade component of the AVID Secondary System that prepares students in the academic middle for admission to a four-year college or university.  Students take an AVID Elective course throughout middle school and high school.  This elective provides them with the skills needed to be successful in advancing academically with the goal of attending college.  For more than 30 years, AVID has been instrumental in preparing students for success in higher education.


The core component of the AVID Secondary System is the AVID Elective, which supports students as they challenge themselves in more rigorous classes.  Students are taught study skills, note-taking, time management, writing skills, and research skills, while being immersed in a college-going culture.  The class also includes tutoring sessions that are led by college students and provide support for success in the academically rigorous curriculum.  Additionally, the AVID class provides access to information about colleges and universities through field trips, guest speakers, college tutors, scholarship opportunities, and college admission requirement information.


  • NOTE:  Current 6th and 7th grade students are hearing about AVID Recruitment both this week and next.
  • Students may pick up an application from Mrs. Phillips, AVID Coordinator (Room 214) or in the Guidance Office.  Applications MUST be returned by Friday, January 25th. 
  • This program is limited in numbers.  The AVID Team will use applications and data analysis to decide who will be interviewed & chosen for AVID Elective classes.
