The Purpose of AVID

To restructure the teaching methods of an entire school and to open access to the curricula that will ensure four-year college eligibility to almost all students.


The Mission of AVID

AVID is an academic, regularly-scheduled elective program based on writing as a tool of learning, inquiry method and collaborative grouping. The three main components of the program are academic instruction, tutorial support and motivational activities.


AVID is designed to increase school wide learning and performance. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students in the middle are capable of completing a college path:

  • Will succeed in rigorous curriculum,
  • Will enter mainstream activities of the school,
  • Will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and
  • Will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.
