Advancement Via Individual Determination or Simply...AVID

by Laura Anderson, AVID Coordinator

What is AVID?

AVID is a program designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students who are in the middle:

  • will succeed in rigorous curriculum,
  • will complete a rigorous college preparatory path,
  • will enter mainstream activities in the school,
  • will increase their enrollment in four year colleges, and
  • will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society

What the research shows about AVID graduates nationwide!

  • 95% are enrolled in a college or university
  • 71.1% are attending a four-year university
  • 23.7% are attending a two-year college
  • 75% are working either full or part-time to send themselves through college
