Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

AVID is a national college preparatory program for students who are underachieving or underserved. The program assists students in developing the academic skills, self-confidence and motivation to attend and be successful at a four-year college or university.

Students work on enhancing their study skills with the goal of successfully participating in honors and Advanced Placement courses. Students learn how to advocate for themselves in academic and non-academic situations. Teachers promote personal empowerment and encourage students to feel validated and recognized in school settings.

AVID is a regularly scheduled elective class that provides students with:

  • Academic instruction from an AVID-trained teacher
  • Tutoring support
  • Assistance with other class assignments
  • Study skills
  • College-level entry skills
  • Curriculum enrichment
  • Motivational activities
  • Coping skills
  • Options for careers

AVID is offered at Del Mar, Leigh and Prospect High Schools. If you are interested in the program, contact your student’s guidance advisor.
