Mission Statement

The mission of AVID is to ensure that ALL students and most especially the least served students who are in the middle:

* will succeed in rigorous curriculum,

* will complete a rigorous college preparatory path,

* will enter mainstream activities of the school,

* will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and

* will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.

AVID's systemic approach is designed to support students and educators as they increase schoolwide/districtwide learning and performance.

Description

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a program designed to prepare students to meet the requirements for admission to 4 year colleges and universities. Students enroll in advanced history, English, math, science, foreign language classes, and in the AVID elective class. In the AVID class, students are tutored by college students and taught skilss necessary to be successful in college preparatory classes. AVID students also learn about colleges and universities (especially the application and financial aid processes) and prepare for college admission tests such as the SAT and ACT. They also take field trips to college campuses and cultural events and have guest speakers from the community speak in the class. Tutor "certification" is available through Fall training sessions taking place here in Ventura County. AVID is a nation-wide program with "certification" being recognized when transferring to another state.
