AVID is a program designed to prepare students in the academic middle for admission to post-secondary universities and colleges. AVID students learn and develop skills to improve their academic success throughout their school careers. In 2015 92% of AVID Seniors were accepted to their first college of their choice.
Students learn study and organizational strategies, writing to learn skills, and probing-question development. Students also get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enriching and motivational activities that make going to college seem realistic.
