Mission Vista High School AVID

Program Description

Program Description AVID Secondary (grades 6-12) is an essential component of the AVID College Readiness System and is designed to enable schoolwide implementation of AVIDâ??s proven instructional methodologies and content area best practices to improve outcomes for all students. AVID Secondary goes beyond the AVID Elective course to affect an entire campus or district by creating a college-going culture that increases the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and their lives beyond. The AVID Elective The AVID Elective is the core of AVID Secondary. It targets students in the academic middleâ??B, C, and even D studentsâ??with the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, and come from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential. AVID places these students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in the most rigorous courses that are appropriate for them, such as Honors and Advanced Placement®. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams reality.
