• What is an AVID Student?

    AVID students are students in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support.  These students often are not realizing their full potential academically. In the identification process, a number of criteria are considered, including:


    Assessment Scores




    Desire and Determination

    First in Family to Attend College

    Historically Underrepresented in 4-year Colleges

    Other Special Circumstances


    While all of the criteria are considered for acceptance into the program, no single criteria will necessarily eliminate a student from consideration.   Students participating in special education, gifted and talented programs, and ELL will be considered for AVID based on the criteria listed above.
