The AVID Student AVID targets students in the academic middle, who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential.
The eligibility to become an AVID student is a 2.0-3.5 GPA, scores between the 50th and 80th percentiles on CST, TerraNova, Teacher and administrator recommendation, and/or expressed commitment to achievement. AVID pulls these students out of their unchallenging courses and puts them on the college track: acceleration instead of remediation.
Results The formula is simple - raise expectations of students, and, with the AVID support system in place, they will rise to the challenge. What differentiates AVID from other educational reform programs is its astounding success rate. Independent research, together with AVID's own data, validate that the AVID college-readiness system works. AVID students are more likely to take AP classes, complete their college eligibility requirements, and get into four-year colleges than students who do not take AVID.
AVID also helps ensure students, once accepted to college, possess the higher- level skills they need for college success. Almost all AVID students who participate for at least three years are accepted to college, with roughly three quarters getting into four-year universities.
The AVID Elective In the AVID elective class, students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and asking probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college seem attainable. Students in AVID are expected to enroll in rigorous classes, such as honors and Advanced Placement®. As students progress in AVID, their self- images improve, and they become academically successful leaders and role models for other students.
The AVID Curriculum The AVID curriculum, based on rigorous standards, was developed by middle and senior high school teachers in collaboration with college professors. AVID curriculum is used in AVID elective classes and in content-area classes in AVID schools. This curriculum assists students in achieving their goals of succeeding in high school and in preparing them for the challenges of college.
Tutors are essential to the success of the AVID elective class, where they facilitate student access to rigorous curriculum. AVID tutors are college students who are trained in leading AVID tutorials and are available to AVID students Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of every week. AVID tutors are an integral part of the AVID elective and are role models to AVID students The AVID Tutor
