AVID Secondary brings best practices and proven methodologies to students in middle, junior high, and high schools. AVID’s goal is to prepare all students in a school for college, starting with the core elective class and expanding school-wide.

AVID Secondary (grades 6-12) is an essential component of the AVID College Readiness System and is designed to enable schoolwide implementation of AVID’s proven instructional methodologies and content area best practices to improve outcomes for all students. AVID Secondary goes beyond the AVID Elective course to affect an entire campus or district by creating a college-going culture that increases the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and their lives beyond.

AVID Elective Class

AVID Secondary starts with an elective class for one period a day. The AVID Elective is the core of AVID Secondary. It targets students in the academic middle–B, C, and even D students–with the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, and come from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential.

AVID places these students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in their school’s toughest courses, such as Honors and Advanced Placement®. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams reality.
