Welcome to AVID

Advancement Via Individual Determination is a year long elective that prepares students for college. In seventh grade students participate in study groups, team building activities, field trips, goal setting and community service projects. Eighth grade students participate in leadership building, tutorials, Socratic learning strategies, field trips and college and career planning. Acceptance is based on a combination of teacher recommendation, test scores, grades and personal motivation. AVID continues at the high school level and promotes acceptance into a four year university. Please contact Mrs. May-Dirkschneider for more information about our AVID program.
