AVID is an internationally recognized program designed to prepare high school students for success in four-year colleges and universities.  AVID students are historically under-represented in four-year schools.  The program includes:  ethnic minority, and/or low income, and/or first generation college students, and/or students who have special circumstances in their lives.  The AVID program has successfully helped many underrepresented students (especially socioeconomically disadvantaged students and Latino students) succeed in rigorous college preparatory classes, enroll in honors and AP classes, meet the a-g requirements, and eventually enroll and succeed in four year colleges and universities.  AVID teachers remain with the same students all four years in high school, addressing the “hidden curriculum” of school and helping them achieve academic success.
