What is AVID?


AVID

What AVID Does

Simply, AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career.

How AVID Works

AVID brings research‐based strategies and curriculum to educational institutions in elementarysecondary, and higher education. The AVID System annually provides more than 30,000 educators with training and methodologies that develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas throughout the entire campus, in what we call School-wide AVID.

AVID:

 

  • Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
  • Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
  • Creates a positive peer group for students
  • Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination

As a result, policymakers and educators now consider AVID's mission to be an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap, making college access and success available to all students.
