Most people have false assumptions about AVID. The AVID program is assumed to be for either very intelligent students or for poor-performing students. The truth is, AVID is a college-preparatory class helping the "middle" students get into a four-year college straight out of high school.

AVID stands for Achievement Via Individual Determination. The students who enroll in this course are equipped with tools to reach their own ambitious goals in their education. Students learn skills in note taking, public speaking, test taking, interviewing, organization and time management.

In addition, the program supplies tutors for students twice a week in a tutorial session. Another benefit of AVID is the privilege of receiving frequent, informative guest speakers to learn about the colleges and careers that are available to the students.

The class offers support students need to succeed in rigorous courses.

AVID is a program dedicated to helping students reach their college dreams. Students learn lifelong skills and are given the moral support they need to succeed. It is a very rewarding class that assists students in reaching their full potential.
