ABOUT AVID AT SBHS

AVID embraces the philosophy that “effort creates ability.” Thus, it is referred to as Advancement Via Individual Determination or AVID from the Latin root word “avidus” which means “eager for knowledge.”

 

AVID is a college readiness system for elementary through higher education that is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance.   AVID  is a sixth through twelfth grade system to prepare students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility and success. It has a proven record in bringing out the best in students and closing the achievement gap.
 
The goal of AVID is to provide students with high expectations, encouragement, day-to-day help through the AVID elective class, and a vision of college as an attainable goal.  AVID is a program designed to give the necessary support to students, particularly those in the academic middle, so that they can attend college and achieve their fullest potential. It also serves to level the playing field for minority and low-income students, as well as students who may be the first in their families to potentially attend college. 

AVID students have skilled tutors, often college students studying to be teachers or studying one of the major subject areas, to help them with their studies. Students are taken on field trips to local colleges and universities throughout the program to familiarize them with some options. The projects planned are rich in content, cooperative learning, and applications that simulate "the real world" after high school.
