Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

What is AVID?

  • For students who have the potential for honors, advanced, and AP work in school and need support to be successful
  • For students who are under-represented or first-generation college students
  • Provides support that includes the student’s own individual determination with a supportive community atmosphere
  • Students must maintain 2.0 (C average) or higher GPA throughout the school year

What AVID is NOT

  • For students who don't do any of their homework
  • For the consistently “D’ or “F” student
  • For unmotivated students
  • A study hall class

Things to Consider

  • Students are expected to be hard workers, have a positive attitude, and work with others.
  • Students in the AVID elective class have potential, but may also have special circumstances that could be obstacles to achievement.
  • Students will be exposed to study skills, test preparation, time management, and the writing process.
  • Students must have regular attendance in school.
  • Really, AVID is for all students, and our AVID elective class is for a group of students who could benefit and be more successful with a little bit of help during the school day.

We'd love for you to pick up an application and apply for the AVID elective!
