What happens in the AVID program?

The AVID Four-Year Elective program is three-pronged: 

1)   Students receive academic instruction in writing note-taking, studying, test-taking, and organizing. 

2)   Students receive academic support from tutors through collaborative tutorial groups and peer counseling.

3)   Students are motivated to pursue academic excellence through goal setting, rigorous classes, cultural and college field trips, classroom guest speakers, and AVID team building.

How do you recognize an AVID student?

The AVID student carries a notebook, takes notes in all classes, is prepared for class, is a positive role model for others, and is "on track" for college.
