AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID is a college readiness system that supports college-bound students and prepares them for life after high school. It offers students a chance to be a part of a four-year program that focuses on raising students’ skills to be fully college ready by the time they graduate.
AVID is offered at Sarah Milner Elementary, Walt Clark Middle School and Thompson Valley High School. At THVS it takes the form of an elective class that students take for all four years of high school. Students will have the same AVID teacher all four years and stay with the same peer group all four years. The program is voluntary and students can opt out if it does not work
