AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and extends beyond just a program to the “hows” and “whys” to teaching, learning and supporting students. AVID’s mission as a national organization is to close the opportunity gap (the differences in opportunities presented to students - support, access to resources, highly-effective instruction, role models, culturally-relevant instruction, and high expectations) by preparing every student for college readiness and success in a global society.

The AVID Elective is the core of AVID Secondary. The elective class targets students in the academic middle - low A to C students –with the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. Typically, these students will be the first in their families to attend college and come from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Beginning AVID students are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but need support in reaching their potential.
AVID Tacoma places students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in their school’s toughest courses, such as Honors and Advanced Placement®. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams reality.
