    A.V.I.D., Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an elective course that prepares students to go straight from high school to a four-year college or university. A.V.I.D. students are encouraged to take honors/advanced placement courses and the tutorials in A.V.I.D. provide a tool to allow our students to be successful in those rigorous courses. A.V.I.D. is an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap and making the college dream accessible to all students. We attend several college field trips a year and work very closely with the Higher Education Center on campus to ensure access and information on financial aid, scholarships, and the college application process. All of the A.V.I.D. elective classes receive University of California a-g elective credit upon completion of the class.
