Avid Students

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

Grades

Citizenship

Attendance

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.
