AVID Now in 28 APS Schools

The program’s updated website cites some impressive statistics including the fact that 94 percent of seniors in AVID classes last year graduated from high school.

AVID, Advancement via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program now in 28 APS middle and high schools that targets the least served students in the academic middle who need a little extra help paving a path to college.

APS introduced the national program in five of its schools four years ago. It has grown to 20 middle and 8 high schools that serve low-income, diverse, mobile student populations.

More than 1,800 students, grades 7-12, are now enrolled in AVID classes, an increase of nearly 25% from last year. Nearly 800 APS teachers and administrators have been trained in AVID strategies since 2009.

More information about AVID in APS in available on its updated website.
