AVID Weekly - New weekly segment focusing on AVID strategies & philosophy

AVID is not just another program… at its heart, AVID is a philosophy; if we hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, they will rise to the challenge.

AVID’s Mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.

How AVID Works

AVID brings research‐based strategies and curriculum to educational institutions in elementary, secondary, and higher education. The AVID System annually provides more than 30,000 educators with training and methodologies that develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas throughout the entire campus, in what is called Schoolwide AVID.

AVID Today

Beginning with one high school and 32 students in 1980, AVID now impacts more than 800,000 students in nearly 5,000 schools and 43 postsecondary institutions in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and across 16 other countries/territories. The AVID College Readiness System spans elementary through higher education.

Although AVID serves all students, the AVID Elective focuses on the least served students in the academic middle. The formula is simple—raise expectations of students and, with the AVID support system in place, they will rise to the challenge. What distinguishes AVID from other educational reform programs is its continuous success rate. Of the 34,229 AVID seniors reporting data in 2013, 91 percent reported plans to attend a postsecondary institution: 60 percent to a four-year college and 30 percent to a two-year institution. Seventy-seven percent reported taking at least one rigorous course, such as AP®, IB®, or Cambridge®, with 66.7 percent taking the corresponding exam.

Policymakers and school administrators now consider AVID an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap and making the college dream accessible to all students.
