AVID is an elective course designed for highly motivated students who see college in their future. AVID students make a commitment to achieve excellence in school as they work toward their goal of being the first in their family to attend a four-year college or university.
The AVID curriculum addresses critical reading and writing, note-taking, research, and organizational strategies. Students must be willing to take advanced math courses in 6th and 7th grade and Algebra I in 8th grade. AVID students commit to bringing completed Tutorial Request Forms to class twice weekly and will meet with a college student for tutorials in their academic courses twice each week.
AVID students will have a number of opportunities to tour university campuses and they learn what college is all about.
