AVID is a program designed to help students in the middle prepare for and succeed at 4-year colleges and universities. Students in the program commit themselves to improvement and preparation for college.
 
AVID offers a rigorous program of instruction in academic “survival skills” and college level entry skills. The AVID program teaches students how to study, read for content, take focused notes, and manage their time; in short, it teaches students how to do school.
 
AVID students participate in collaborative study groups led by tutors who use skillful questioning to bring students to a higher level of understanding. The AVID class becomes a safe space for students to develop their skills as competent students.
