AVID Students Stay Engaged (April 2016)
AVID is not just another program… at its heart, AVID is a philosophy:
- Hold students accountable to the highest standards,
- provide academic and social support, and
- they will rise to the challenge.
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities. Established more than 35 years ago with one teacher in one classroom, AVID today impacts more than 1.2 million students in 44 states and 16 other countries/territories.
