AVID Mission Statement:
AVID’s mission 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-preparatory program in which students will develop and reinforce attitudes, skills, and knowledge to successfully enter and complete advanced class work through the support from the AVID Elective Class. The AVID elective class is the key element for the AVID program. The AVID program is aimed at directing students to a college-bound path. This will be done by holding tutorials, teaching organizational skills, and developing the learning process with critical thinking skills. We will also be visiting colleges and participating in team building exercises. Some of the topics to be covered in the AVID elective will include:
study skills; note-taking; collaboration; tutorials; career discovery; seminars & discussions; college exploration; organization skills; test-taking skills; inquiry; self-assessment; peer support.
