AVID

AVID

AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) is a four-year college preparatory elective in which students become the facilitators of their own academic success. AVID provides daily study groups directed by college tutors, a structure of note-taking and organization aimed at refining skills necessary for success in both high school and college, and an arena for expanding the college-level entry skills of students under-represented in higher education.
 
Success in AVID is measured by students' success in high school and college academics.
