What Is AVID?

What is AVID?

AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a systemic instructional system for students in kindergarten all the way through higher education (K-16). The AVID College Readiness System is a school-wide transformational effort focused on leadership, systems, instruction, and culture, and is designed to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and in their lives beyond high school. AVID-trained educators teach students academic and social skills to help them develop the habits and behaviors needed to succeed in a rigorous curriculum. The AVID College Readiness System is a catalyst for developing a school culture that closes the expectation and opportunity gaps many students face and prepares all students for success in a global society.
