  • CHALLENGE STUDENTS ABOUT WHO THEY ARE: One of the most important parts of AVID is helping students learn about themselves and make proper choices in life.  Many of the AVID class activities, although academic in nature, often force students to reflect on who they are and who they want to become.  Pointing students towards their own path to success is always our goal.
