AVID is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students in the middle capable of completing a college preparatory path:
AVID prepares students in the academic middle for 4-year college eligibility. These are typically students who are first time college-goers in their families, low income and capable of completing rigorous curriculum, but who are falling short of their potential.
The program requires a four-year commitment, with one class period each year devoted to the AVID elective. Because AVID uses the elective block each year, students will need to attend summer school, take zero or 7th period classes, or take Palomar College classes, to meet their UC/CSU a-g course requirements as well as their high school graduation requirements.
Students who are in AVID attend schools such as University of Redlands, La Verne University, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, Cal Poly SLO, CSU Chico, CSU East Bay, Humboldt State, CSU Fullerton, San Jose State, San Francisco State, CSU San Marcos, and SDSU.
