AVID Overview

College and Career Readiness System:

AVID Secondary (grades 7-12) develops learning, study and academic behavioral skills that are essential to success in rigorous coursework. It acts as a catalyst for schools to develop a culture of college readiness for all students across the campus. In the AVID Elective class, students receive daily instruction and support to prepare them for college from a trained AVID Elective teacher. AVID impacts students schoolwide as academic strategies like writing to learn, inquiry, collaboration, organizational skills, and critical reading (WICOR ) are taught in all classes by teachers who have been trained to use AVID strategies in their specific content areas.

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It is an in-school academic and mentoring support program for our 9th through 12th graders that prepares students for college eligibility and success. More than just another program, AVID is a philosophy:  Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and the will rise to the challenge.  

In addition to our AVID elective courses, Mission Vista believes in a school-wide implementation of AVID strategies and college readiness for all students.
