AVID provides scaffolded support that educators and students need to encourage college and career readiness and success. AVID 9 and 10 are designed with a focus on organization and academic skills to help students transition into high school and to be successful in rigorous college preparatory classes. AVID 11 continues to build on academic skills, but the focus changes to college readiness. Students review career goals and begin to design education plans that involve college exploration, test preparation, and financial aid awareness. AVID 12 begins the transition to post-secondary educational planning. Students focus on taking the SAT/ACT, exploring college, and completing college and financial aid applications.
Prerequisite: Students in AVID 12 must have completed a previous AVID class.
