About AVID

AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination, is designed to increase the number of students who enroll in and graduate from four-year colleges and universities. The AVID college readiness system accelerates student learning, uses research-based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change. The system is credited with helping to turn students into confident, college-going scholars and graduates. 

AVID's mission is close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

The AVID program began in SAISD in 1997. AVID is offered as an elective course during the school day. Students learn organizational and study skills; they work on critical thinking and asking probing questions and they receive academic help from peers. The students also participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college attainable.
