Welcome to AVID

Mission Statement:

AVID'S mission is to Close the Achievement Gap by Preparing All Students for College Readiness and Success in a Global Society.


The AVID System is designed to increase school wide learning and performance for student in grades K-12.  The purpose of the AVID system is to restructure the teaching methods of the entire school and to open access to the curricula that will ensure four-year college eligibility for all students for college readiness and success in a global society.


AVID students are typically first-time college-goers in their families and are capable of completing a rigorous curriculum, but are falling short of their potential.  AVID students are enrolled in honors and AP classes, and attend an elective class—called AVID—taught within the school day by a trained AVID teacher.


      AVID meets the needs of these students by:

1. Providing academic instruction and other support to students to prepare them for eligibility in four-year colleges and universities

2. Giving students college-level entry skills

3. Increasing the “coping skills” of students

4. Motivating students to seek college educations

5. Increasing each student’s level of career awareness
