AVID: Turning Potential Into Success
The purpose of AVID is to identify 8th grade students that are in the “academic middle” and then support those students with the pursuit of college preparatory courses in high school. Students in AVID are required to take at least one advanced class each year and an AVID elective course for support. Students receive guidance and learn strategies on how to manage upper-level courses through all four years of their high school career with a team of staff members dedicated to the AVID process and the success of the student. Attendees will learn about the goals and philosophy of AVID, the selection process for participation, requirements, and what high school life will look like for AVID students.
