  • AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

    AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

    AVID empowers students by explicitly teaching them the hidden curriculum of school by developing time management, organization, interactive note-taking, inquiry, collaboration, writing, and reading skills.   

    The AVID elective class supports students as they engage in the most rigorous courses appropriate for them. The purpose of the AVID program is to restructure the teaching methods of an entire school and to open access to the curricula that will ensure post-secondary choices for all students.

    The instructional program focuses on methodologies that will help students prepare and participate in a rigorous preparatory curriculum. All AVID students are highly encouraged to challenge themselves by taking honors classes, with the goal of completing at least one Advanced Placement course before high school graduation.
