The AVID application for the 24-25 school year is now closed (the deadline was Monday, Jan. 29). There may still be an opportunity to apply for AVID next school year around the same time for students who will be in 9th and 10th grade in 24-25.
Students will be notified if they are accepted into our AVID program in late February after course selection, but don't worry our AVID Counselor Mr. Autenrieth will help make sure to adjust your schedule if you are accepted.

One update, it is possible for some students to do AVID and STEAM, but it will depend on if they are also in other specialty programs with required classes and what their long-term goals are.
