Advancement Via Individual Determination - AVID
AVID Fieldtrips 2017-2018
October 5 – Emporia State University
March 9 – Tabor College
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination! We have two AVID Elective classes that are centered around helping students become high school ready and college aware. Everything we do in AVID is focused on what we call WICOR. Students who excel in these areas are more likely to be high school and college ready!
W - Writing
I - Inquiry (questioning)
C - Collaboration (working together)
O - Organization
R – Reading
In addition we go on college field trips and have guest speakers come in to talk about their careers. Recruitment and applications for the AVID Elective classes happen in the spring. Please watch the website for more information regarding applications.
