• AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills.


  • Why Does AUSD Embrace the AVID Way?


    • High expectations begin by changing what educators and students believe is possible. AVID helps educators identify and change practices that keep students with potential out of advanced courses by examining selection criteria and requirements.

    • AVID-trained teachers provide the additional help students need to believe in themselves and handle the school’s most rigorous classes.

    • Through AVID, teachers leverage their students’ backgrounds and experiences to master content in a more personal way.


    75% of AVID students are from a low socioeconomic status background, and 80% are underrepresented students. Nevertheless, they outperform their peers in crucial metrics nationwide.
