Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)
Who can be in AVID?
AVID is for students grades 6-8 who are not necessarily college-bound, but who are willing to work hard & push themselves, and will hopefully become college-bound by the end of their high school career. AVID looks for students who have:
- good SBAC scores,
- 2.0 or higher GPAs
- a good attendance record
- the desire and determination to take challenging courses, such as AP & honors classes in high school
What is required in AVID?
Each AVID student carries a binder in which he or she is required to keep materials from all academic classes. Students keep track of assignments on assignment sheets and are required to take DAILY notes in all academic classes. The notebooks are graded weekly for content and organization by college tutors. Led by tutors, students participate in tutorial groups in the AVID classroom. In addition, students are taught study skills, test preparation, time management, and the writing process.

What Do AVID
AVID tutors are college students who receive training in methodologies used in AVID: writing process, Socratic questioning, collaborative learning, and reading. They are in the classroom weekly to serve as models and to help students achieve success in rigorous classes. They are trained not to give students answers but rather to guide them toward answers.
