AVID Background

The Mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, especially students in middle abilities, are capable of completing a college-preparatory path.  Students will:

  • succeed in rigorous curricula
  • enter mainstream activities of the school
  • increase their enrollment in four-year colleges and universities
