AVID Program

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an academic elective course that prepares students for college and career readiness and success, and it is scheduled during the regular school day as a year-long course. Each week, students receive instruction utilizing a rigorous college preparatory curriculum provided by AVID Center, tutor-facilitated study groups, motivational activities, and academic success skills. In AVID, students participate in activities that incorporate strategies focused
on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading (WICOR) to support their academic growth. Ultimately, our goal is to help students build a bridge that helps them to move from high school straight into a four-year university (either CSU, UC, or private) or to vocational training programs.
