AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID started in California in the early 1980s. Since then, it
has expanded across the United States and around the world. AVID is a
college-readiness program that prepares students for college success
their first day on campus. AVID targets students in the
academic middle; they are not straight "A" students, nor do they fail
their classes. AVID students are easily identifiable because they are
determined students who want to succeed, but may need a little support
focused on specific college readiness skills such as note-taking, test
preparation, time management, etc.
Who are AVID students?
AVID students are in 6th - 12th grade from the academic middle, and meet the following requirements:
- GPA of 2.0-3.5
- Average to high OAKS test scores
- Have the drive/determination to be successful in school
- Have great potential for success with added support
- The student wants to be in AVID
