AVID Elective Application
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and is a junior high through senior high school college readiness system designed to prepare self-determined students for college readiness. A component of the AVID college readiness system is the AVID Elective class, which is designed to support students as they enroll in rigorous courses. In the AVID Elective class, students receive training in effective study skills, such as note taking, organizational skills, and goal-setting strategies. Students also receive a research-based college preparation curriculum. Finally, a critical component of AVID is tutoring, where AVID students receive tutoring from college mentors twice per week to support them in their academic coursework.
