Funding Description

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an in-school academic support program for grades seven through twelve.

AVID places academically average students in advanced classes; levels the playing field for minority, rural, low-income, and other students without a college-going tradition in their families; and targets students in the academic middle--B, C, and even D students--who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard.
