________________AVID Elective Class________________

This elective focuses on the main college readiness skills our students need to be successful in high school and beyond.  The key skills taught are writing​, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading.  In addition to developing core skills students receive support in exploring their college options and build a "family" community in their AVID elective class.

______________T​​​he "Ideal" AVID Student_______________

AVID students are students in the middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support. These students often are not realizing their full potential academically. In the identification process a number of criteria are considered, including:

      • GPA (Ideally between 2.0-3.5)
      • Citizenship (No serious discipline issues allowed)
      • Attendance (Good attendance is a must)
      • Desire and Determination
      • First in the Family to Attend College
