• College and Career Readiness AVID Program 

    The mission of AVID is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and success in a global society. AVID is a college and career readiness system that takes students with the potential and determination to go to college and supports their academic success in the rigorous courses (MS advanced & HS Honors for grades 6-8). In the AVID elective course, students are taught the skill sets (purposeful note-taking, organization, public speaking, responsibility, etc.) necessary to be successful in those rigorous courses. Many students will be the first in their families to attend college, come from low-income or minority families, or have unique personal circumstances that require a greater academic support system within the school day. AVID creates an atmosphere of positive peer culture for the students, in which they encourage each other to strive for success.
