    The A.V.I.D. class, held within the regular school day, provides support, academic monitoring, and tutoring.  The writing process, Socratic questioning, collaborative learning, and reading are the core strategies of the program.

    A.V.I.D. is an elective class offered to students who would like to prepare for four-year universities.  The curriculum features writing, inquiry, collaboration, reading, note-taking and study skills, and college/career/motivational activities.  College students are in the classroom as tutors twice a week, and field trips are taken to universities in the area.  Students must commit to taking notes in subject area classes on a daily basis.  Requirements for applicants are a G.P.A. of 2.5 to 3.5, at least one Advanced or Honors Class, and a level 2,3, or 4 on FCAT Reading and Math.

    A.V.I.D. is a daily class that students enroll in and it counts as an elective. Students also have the unique opportunity to stay in A.V.I.D. all three years of middle school and all four years of high school. Every year the program builds and adds to the success of each student. Plus A.V.I.D. looks great on a college application!
