What is the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Program ?
AVID is a national program, offering systematic instruction and a common curriculum for students in kindergarten through higher education (K-16). UNC Asheville has partnered with AVID in Asheville City Schools for fourteen years to provide academic and institutional support for hundreds of students. Each semester, 80 UNC Asheville students serve as AVID tutors at Asheville Middle School, Asheville High School, and SILSA. Since 2000, UNC Asheville has hosted AVID Summer Bridge, a two-week summer intensive program, for rising 8th, 9th and 10th grade AVID students.
How have ACS AVID graduates fared?
Adopted in 1997 by Asheville City Schools to bridge the disparity gap in college going communities amongst low-income students, the ACS AVID program has graduated over 200 students. Over 90% of ACS AVID graduates have been accepted to 4-year colleges or universities. 85% of AVID graduates who are also CAYLA graduates have either graduated from college or are still currently enrolled.
