What is the AVID system?
AVID stands for "Advancement Via Individual Determination"

It is a college-readiness system designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance. It is designed to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and in their lives beyond high school.

AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing ALL students for college readiness and success in a global society.

If a student is struggling or you are just not sure what is going on, feel free to contact us.
