AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students in the middle, are capable of succeeding after high school. 

The AVID Elective is an exploratory class for 7th and 8th-grade students.  In the AVID elective, students learn study and organization skills, develop critical thinking skills, receive academic support from tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college more attainable.  

Who should apply for the AVID elective? AVID targets students in the academic middle who have the desire to go to college and willingness to work hard.  AVID students are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but may be falling short of their potential. 

The typical AVID student:

  • have average to high test scores, 
  • has a 2.0-3.5 GPA,
  • has college potential, 
  • is the first in their family to attend college,
  • may be historically underrepresented on four-year college campuses, and 
  • may be low income and/or meet special circumstances.

Applications for 2020-2021 AVID classes are due February 10th, 2020 and can be found here.
