District AVID Program
Advancement Via Individual Determination
“While others talk about what should be done to prepare
students for college, AVID is doing it. For more than 30
years, the AVID College Readiness System has helped
thousands of students, many of whom are overlooked and
underserved, rise above the obstacles they face to achieve
academic success.”
What are the benefits of joining AVID?
Ongoing Mentoring
The AVID teacher serves as a college advisor
tracking the progress of each student towards
college.
Progress reports are used to track student
performance.
Academic Support
• College tutors are paid to come into the AVID
class and work with our students, helping them
to become independent learners.
“College Going” Environment
• The atmosphere in the class is motivating and
students encourage each other to strive for their
goals.
College Visits
• All students are exposed directly to the colleges
via campus visits, including the Junior Trip
(Northern California).

in the college application process.

exams; SAT, ACT, College Placement Test, etc.
