AVID is a class for students who want to attend a four-year university, but could benefit from a community of like-minded students to help get them there. Many of the AVID students are from under-represented backgrounds or will be the first in their family to attend college. The goal of the AVID program is to give motivated students the tools to do well in high school and prepare for a rigorous college curriculum so they will be ready to succeed when they get there. We do this through organizational skills, note-taking and study strategies, improving reading and writing, tutorials, community service, and building a positive community in the classroom. Each AVID class teacher stays with the same group of students from their freshman year until they graduate from high school and go on to college as seniors.
