Advancement Via Individualized Determination, or AVID, is a national, nonprofit college readiness system offered to students of all academic levels in grades K-12. The system is designed to equip students with the necessary intellectual skills and behaviors for academic success in rigorous coursework. AVID empowers students with critical thinking skills to navigate the educational landscape through an explicit focus on high expectations, while emphasizing the development and refinement of student competence in writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading, or WICOR.

Students in middle school experience best practices and proven methodologies through AVID Schoolwide and the AVID Elective.
