 AVID- (Advancement Via Individual Determination) 

AVID is an in-school college readiness system designed to increase student learning and performance.  Its mission is to prepare students academically for four-year college eligibility.  The core component of the program is the AVID Elective Course where students, grades 6-12, receive guidance, academic support from college tutors, organizational and study skills, and participate in activities that foster success in rigorous course work. 


AVID is currently implemented in 21 middle schools and 6 high schools in PGCPS. More information on individual programs can be obtained at the school website.
