AVID and AVID Excel - Advancement Via Individual Determination

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a school wide college readiness program that is first and foremost a college readiness course. Students are nominated or selected because they show potential to not only enroll and succeed in rigorous courses, but to be on track to attend any college. AVID is designed to impact the leadership, systems, instruction and culture of a school to support high expectations and levels of achievement for all students. AVID impacts students throughout the school when trained teachers use AVID strategies to influence the academic and behavioral skills of their students in all content classes. Although AVID is an elective course for selected students, ALL students will benefit because the methodologies, strategies, and expectations are school wide and impact the learning environment and culture of an entire campus.
