AVID Students are enrolled in the most rigorous classes and exposed to college prep curriculum, such as Advanced Placement®, and receive support in an academic elective class - called AVID - taught within the school day by a trained AVID teacher. In the accelerated elective class, AVID students receive support through a rigorous curriculum and ongoing, structured tutorials. AVID elective teachers serve as advocates that support AVID students by providing academic training, managing their tutorials, working with faculty and parents, and by helping students develop long-range academic and personal plans. For more information see "What is AVID", a letter to parents.
