Mission Statement

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

What is AVID?

An acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.
- An in-school academic support program for grades 5-12 that prepares students for college eligibility and success.
- Places academically average students in advanced classes.
- Levels the playing field for minority, rural, low-income and other students without a college-going tradition in their families.
- For all students, but it targets those in the academic middle.
- Implemented school-wide and eventually district-wide.
