AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

Mission
AVID’s mission is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. Regardless of their life circumstances, AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. They graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them.
Program Description
AVID offers tutoring that is:
 1. Structured: A process of repeatable steps allows for consistency across models; teachers, tutors, and students are trained on, reflective of, and continually coached in that process.
 2. Student-Centered and Safe: All tutorial models are built on a foundation of relational capacity so that students feel supported while seeking solutions.
 3. Inquiry-Based: Tutors and peers ask higher-order questions instead of offering answers.
 4. Collaborative: Peers use their collective agency to resolve points of confusion and support each other.
 5. Equitable: Defined roles and responsibilities ensure equal participation.
 6. Metacognitive: Students identify where they are confused, and then summarize their new learning and reflect on the process.
