|What is AVID?
AVID is a fourth- through twelfth-grade system to prepare students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility and success. The program places the academically average (generally 2.0-3.5 GPA) students in advanced classes. AVID is for all students, but it targets those in the academic middle.
AVID is not a remedial program, college outreach program or a free ride. Students in AVID possess average reading and math skills but have the drive to improve their organizational, time-management and social skills so that they may find academic success on every level. Many AVID students will be a first-generation college student, so they tend to be highly motivated.
