AVID
AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.  

AVID at the secondary level is: 
An elective class that uses an established curriculum made up of rigorous standards, WICOR (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading) strategies, Cornell note-taking, study skills, tutorials led by trained college tutors, and Socratic Seminars.
A structured, college preparatory system working directly with schools and districts.
A direct support structure for first-generation college students, grades 7-12.
A school-wide approach to curriculum and rigor adopted by nearly 4,000 schools in 45 states and 15 countries.
A professional development program providing training around the world.


The AVID class meets daily and uses an established curriculum. It includes:
Rigorous standards,
WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading) strategies,
Cornell note-taking,
Study skills,
Tutorials led by trained college tutors on Tuesdays and Thursdays,
Socratic Seminars, and
The creation of a network of support made up of parents, teachers, and AVID classmates all focused on the goal of preparing students for college.
