AVID's mission is to...
close the achievement gap by preparing all students for
college readiness and success in a global society.
AVID Curriculum Focuses on WICOR
Students who are good writers, know how to ask questions, can work well with others, are organized and can read to create thoughts and ideas are students who are more likley to be successful in college. In the AVID elective class, all student work is focused on these 5 areas in order to help our middle school student become high school ready. In addition, students in AVID will begin to see what college is like, where they might want to go and visit campuses with our ultimate goal to help our students be ready for high school so they can enter and graduate from a 4-year college.
In addition to the academic focus areas of WICOR, AVID also focuses on helping students discover what their future might look like as college students. AVID students go on field trips to visit college campuses so students can begin to visualize what living and participating on a college campus looks like. Exposing students to a variety of jobs is also a priority for AVID students. We work to have guest speakers share with students about a variety of jobs available to them so they can discover possible job opportunities they may not have known about prior.
