San Rafael High School AVID

  • English/AVID

Program Description

AVID is a regularly scheduled elective class that prepares students with academic potential for success in college.

AVID is designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, especially those least served students in the middle, are capable of completing a college path:

  • Will succeed in a rigorous curriculum
  • Will enter mainstream activities of the school
  • Will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and
  • Will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.

All AVID students are involved in service learning and community service both as part of their overall grade and for extracurricular experiences. These experiences provide students with learning opportunities for leadership skills, collaborative inquiry, and job experience, help to form them into global citizens, and contribute to the college application process and scholarship opportunities. It's all about making our AVID family college ready and college prepared!
