What is AVID?

AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills.

A 2013 study, conducted by AVID, showed that 89% of graduating seniors in Riverside and San Bernardino counties were accepted by a four year college. Does AVID work? You decide.
