The AVID Student

The AVID college readiness program accepts students with academic potential. Students must apply for the elective class, will be interviewed, and, if accepted, will be required to maintain academic and behavioral standards. AVID students are role models and potential leaders in their schools.

Students with Academic Potential include those with:

  • Average to high test scores
  • 2.0-3.5 GPA

  • Desire and determination

The typical AVID student meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • First in their family to attend college
  • Historically underserved in four-year colleges

Students are carefully selected for the program. Targeted students include, but are not limited to those meeting the above criteria.
