AVID is a College Readiness System which equips teachers and schools with what they need to help students succeed on a path to college and career success.

The AVID Elective is a class that meets for one period a day where students receive the additional academic, social, and emotional support to succeed in their school’s most rigorous courses.

The power of AVID is the ability to impact students in the AVID Elective class and all students throughout the campus. AVID can have an effect on the entire school by providing classroom activities, teaching practices, and academic behaviors that can be incorporated into any classroom to improve engagement and success for all students. AVID trained teachers can take what they've learned at AVID training back to any classroom to help all students, not just those in AVID, to become more college and career ready.

AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
