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:
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.
