    What is AVID in Middle School and High School?

    AVID Secondary (grades 6-12) is an essential component of the AVID College Readiness System and is designed to enable schoolwide implementation of AVID’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.
