AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a nonprofit that changes lives by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach.
AVID equips teachers and schools with what they need to help these students succeed on a path to college and career success.
To address this need, AVID has developed the AVID Elective course for each grade level. Students receive the additional academic, social, and emotional support that will help them succeed in their school’s most rigorous courses, and in college.
Often, the students who are enrolled in the AVID Elective Course:
- Will be the first in their families to attend college
- Are from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education
- Have a drive to be successful
ALSO At Davis, we have an AVID Club. Calling all college-going students!
(AVID Club meets Thursdays at lunch in room 400)
