AVID stands for... Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID is an in-school academic support program for grades 7-12 that prepares students for college eligibility and success.
AVID places academically average students in advanced classes.
AVID levels the playing field for minority, rural, low-income and other students without a college-going tradition in their families.
AVID is for all students, but it targets those in the academic middle.
AVID is implemented school wide and district wide.
What AVID isn't...
AVID isn't a remedial program
AVID isn't a free ride
AVID isn't a college outreach program
