AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The AVID program's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for post-secondary success in a global society. AVID elective students are bright students who have the desire to go to college, and the willingness to work hard. 

AVID elective students are capable of completing rigorous course work, but are falling short of their potential, and need extra support to thrive in accelerated classes. AVID elective students are supported in accelerated courses by learning note taking, study, organizational, time management, and inquiry skills. Developing these skills promotes students becoming independent learners thus preparing them for their post-secondary goals. 

AVID students participate in tutorials during the AVID elective class which gives them a deeper understanding of core content material that they can then apply in their classes. Historically, almost all AVID students who participate for at least three years are accepted to college with roughly three quarters getting into four year universities.
