• AVID is a college readiness program designed to support all students.  It begins in elementary school, embedded throughout the day.  It then evolves in middle and high school as both a targeted elective program and is also woven into  school wide strategies.  AVID closes the achievement gap through a rigorous curriculum focused on reading, writing and college going skills. 
    AVID serves 6th, 7th & 8th grade students and takes the place of an elective class.  Students who take AVID in middle school have a greater chance of being accepted into AVID in high school and a 90% chance of being college ready when they graduate high school!

    Who may apply for AVID:  Any interested students may apply.   We are primarily looking for students who will be the first in their family to attend university and do give priority to students with B/C grades, who are not currently in honors classes.  Students need to have excellent citizenship and a drive to succeed.   

    Application Process: Applications and interviews are required to be accepted into the program.  This process occurs in March.
