Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an established, national program designed for students in the academic middle who may need extra support and resources to become college ready. These are students who are capable of taking honors and/or college-level classes but are falling short of their potential.
Benefits of AVID include:
- Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
- Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creates a positive peer group for students, especially those underrepresented in higher education
- Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
