Welcome to AVID!
AVID is an acronym which stands for Advancement via Individual Determination. It is a college-prep and support program that prepares students for college eligibility and success.
The AVID program was started in Robbinsdale Area Schools in 2006-07 and currently serves students in grades 7-12 at Plymouth Middle, Robbinsdale Middle, Armstrong and Cooper High Schools. AVID targets academically promising students (GPA of 2.0-3.5) and places them in advanced courses, while supporting them through the AVID elective.
AVID levels the playing field for students without a college-going tradition in their families and/or students who are underrepresented on four-year college campuses.
AVID is designed to increase school-side learning and performance and to ensure that all students succeed in rigorous curriculum, participate in activities at school, increasing enrollment in four-year colleges and become better educated and responsible participants and leaders in society.
