Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an academic elective course that prepares students for college readiness and success, and it is scheduled during the regular school day as a year-long course. Each week, students receive instruction utilizing a rigorous college preparatory curriculum provided by AVID Center, tutor-facilitated study groups, that strengthen metacognitive development, analytical reading and writing, communication skills, motivational activities, and academic success skills. Students are expected to use these strategies in their other classes and enroll in the most challenging course of study that is suitable to their skills. In AVID, students participate in activities that incorporate strategies focused on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading to support their academic growth. Students will increase awareness of their personal contributions to their learning, as well as their involvement in their school and community. Students will prepare for and participate in college entrance and placement exams, while refining study skills and test-taking, note-taking, and research techniques. Enrollment is
by invitation only. Applicants are selected based on an application and a personal interview.
Note: This course may not be available for registration in Skyward.
