Advanced Placement

Brief Description of AVID

What is AVID? AVID is an acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It is a grades 5 through 12 program that encourages largely lower-income, underrepresented, academically average, motivated students to achieve their potential and attend a four-year college.

AVID requires enrollment in an elective class taught by an AVID-trained teacher, enrollment in a school’s most rigorous courses such as AP, use of AVID methods of writing as a tool of learning, inquiry-based lessons, detailed Cornell note-taking skills, collaborative learning, and extensive reading.

AVID is not a curriculum but rather a school-wide program of collaboration, support, and teaching methodology that requires a site coordinator, tutors, site team, staff development, careful selection of participants, and full parent support through a pledge in order to increase college enrollment.
