AVID is a support program for students bound for four-year universities. AVID students must be self-directed and motivated. Students are expected to stay enrolled in college preparatory courses and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA throughout high school. Although students may be recruited from the ninth and tenth grade, students typically enter AVID as freshmen and stay with the program through their senior year. The classroom teacher instructs students using AVID curriculum, focusing on writing, inquiry, and collaboration. Seminars are given in note taking, goal setting, team building, reading improvement, test-taking skills, study and time management skills, personal organization, and SAT/ACT preparation. Students also receive tutorial support in the AVID class, which helps students achieve in all their academic courses and prepares them for college work. In addition, students have the opportunity to visit neighboring universities, hear college and career speakers, and participate in artistic and cultural experiences.
