What is AVID?

AVID (more about AVID) is an elective class for students who are capable of completing a college-prep path, but need extra support. This course helps students prepare for college and pushes them to take harder, more rigorous classes in high school.

AVID is based on WICR:

  • writing as a tool of learning
  • the inquiry method
  • collaborative grouping
  • academic reading

It also gives students the chance to tour college campuses, hear from guest speakers and it offers group tutoring sessions two times a week.


What are the requirements to take an AVID class?

APS' AVID programs are for students grades 7-12 who are not necessarily college-bound, but who are willing to work hard and push themselves, and will hopefully become college-bound by the end of their high school career. AVID looks for students who have:

  • good SBA scores
  • a 2.0-3.5 GPA in non-weighted classes
  • a good attendance record
  • the desire and determination to take challenging courses, such as AP and honors classes, and do well in them

Also, those who are the first college-bound students in their families, historically under-represented in four-year colleges, or economically disadvantaged are given priority in the application process.
