Welcome to AVID!

AVID stands for Achievement Via Individual Determination. AVID is a class which prepares students for four year college eligibility. AVID students are enrolled in advanced courses and attend an academic elective class called AVID. AVID serves over 250,000 students across the nation helping to achieve their goals.
