Join the A.V.I.D. Family?
Transcript of Join the A.V.I.D. Family?
As an A.V.I.D. student, you work very hard in class. As an escape from school and a chance to choose your future college, we take a trip.
For example, this past year we visited A&M University and many of the students chose to apply there after high school. It is a lot of fun, and a great way to pick our future education location.
Join the A.V.I.D. Family!
You should join A.V.I.D. because it is a great way to study, prepare for college, and keep up with your grades. It is also great when you need to have someone support you when you can't make it alone.
How to Join:
Request an application .
Complete the application and return to Mrs. Cox.
Ask your teachers for a recommendation.
Then you will be interviewed by Mrs. Cox
The A.V.I.D. Student
What is A.V.I.D.?
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness system for elementary through
higher education that is designed to increase school wide learning and performance. The AVID College Readiness System (ACRS) accelerates student
learning, uses research based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.
Guidelines for A.V.I.D.
To stay in A.V.I.D. you have to:
Keep a 70 or above average in all classes.
Be in at least one advanced class.
Have a good school conduct.
AVID targets students in the academic middle - B, C, and even D students - who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, and many are from low-income or minority families. AVID pulls these students out of their non-challenging courses and puts them on the college track: acceleration instead of remediation.
We're all one Big Family
