Are you determined to do what it takes to succeed? To challenge yourself to set goals and meet goals? To collaborate, to communicate, to work toward a better planned future?
Then AVID could be the fit for you! AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. In AVID we work together to push each other toward our goals, research college and career expectations, polish our listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills together through collaboration in tutorials and other small group and team building activities.
Each AVID class has the opportunity to go on a college visit to surrounding colleges in the area to experience what college life is like and even enjoy a meal on campus. AVID students also perform community service throughout the year as well as put on events for AVID students and families and end the year with an awards banquet.
Applications are available every spring to all students. Students are chosen based on a combined score in teacher recommendations, student data, application essay, and interview. This year AVID will not be an elective option, but rather will become an option in place of Enrichment ELA.
