Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID’s mission is to close the opportunity gap.
At a time when our nation is facing unprecedented learning loss, the best way forward is to activate every student’s desire and commitment to own the present and the future. Inspiring student agency is what AVID does best. AVID prepares students for college readiness and success in a global society.
AVID’s Elementary through Secondary system brings research-based curriculum and strategies to students each day that develop critical thinking, literacy and math skills across all content areas.
AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact school-wide structures. AVID Elementary focuses on the four necessary areas to ensure that all students are poised for academic success: Instruction, Culture, Leadership and System.
AVID Secondary (grades 6 – 12) is an essential component of the AVID College Readiness System and is designed to enable school-wide implementation of AVID’s proven instructional methodologies and content area best practices to improve outcomes for all students. AVID Secondary goes beyond the AVID Elective course to affect an entire campus or district by creating a college-going culture that increases the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and their lives.
AVID reduces barriers that traditionally limit levels of academic achievement by providing an academic support program to develop college success skills needed for academic success, persistence, and graduation.
