Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), a college readiness system, is designed to be a transformational effort focused on instruction, systems, leadership, and culture, and is designed to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and in their lives beyond high school.The core of AVID at the middle and high school level is the AVID Elective class, where students are enrolled in a school’s most rigorous classes, such as Honors or Advanced Placement (AP) and receive support through the AVID Elective.The goal of AVID at the secondary level is to ensure college readiness for all AVID Elective students and improved academic performance for all students based on increased opportunities.

How To Apply To AVID
AVID enrolls its students in rigorous classes such as honors and Advanced Placement, and provides support through an academic elective class taught within the school day by trained AVID teachers.
You can find out even more about the program by visiting the national AVID website.
Students are considered for AVID during the spring of the year that proceeds the upcoming school year. Qualifying students new to the district may be considered and admitted to the program at mid-year. An AVID student, in good academic and behavioral standing, who transfers into a CHCCS school from a different school district, may be enrolled in the program at the time of transfer.
