The mission of AVID is to ensure that ALL students, especially historically underserved students who are in the middle:
- Will succeed in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum.
- Will enter mainstream activities of the school.
- Will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.
AVID is an elective class that combines rigor with the support that includes the student’s own individual determination and the support of content area teachers and college tutors. 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. The AVID curriculum emphasizes the use of technology to better prepare students to become college and career ready in a global society. Prospective students will need to complete an application process (hard copy application, interview, and teacher recommendations).
