AVID logo with words: "decades of college dreams"

For 7th and 8th grade students:

Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) gives students the skills and confidence needed to be successful in college or the workplace including research, information analysis, collaboration, and more.  

What AVID is... 

The AVID curriculum, based on rigorous standards, was developed by middle and senior high school teachers in collaboration with college professors.  It is driven by the WICR method, which stands for writing, inquiry, collaboration, and reading.  AVID curriculum is used in AVID elective classes, in content-area classes in AVID schools, and even in schools where the AVID elective is not offered.  

  1. AVID is an acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. 
  2. AVID is an in-school academic support program for grades 4-12 that prepares students for college eligibility and success. 
  3. AVID places academically average students in advanced classes. 
  4. AVID levels the playing field for minority, rural, low-income, and other students without a college-going tradition in their families. 
  5. AVID is for all students, but it targets those in the academic middle. 
  6. AVID is implemented school-wide and districtwide. 

What AVID isn't... 

  1. AVID isn't a remedial program. 
  2. AVID isn't a free ride. 
  3. AVID isn't a college outreach program.
