How to Apply for AVID 
AVID is a program for students who have a GPA of 2.0-3.5 and a strong desire to go to a four-year college or university. Students in the program take the AVID elective class at the same time they are enrolled in rigorous courses. The class focuses on writing, critical thinking, collaboration, reading, note-taking, study skills and college/career/motivational activities. Students are expected to keep an organized binder and take notes in every class every day of the week. Tutors are in the AVID class twice per week.
