AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID can transform schools and districts so that students, particularly those students who are first generation college-goers, will be successful in college and a career.
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a proven, college-readiness system designed to increase the number of students who enroll and persist in postsecondary education. Although AVID serves all students, it focuses on the least-served students in the academic middle. The formula is simple – raise expectations of students, and, with the AVID support system in place, they will rise to the challenge.
AVID is implemented in 4,900 schools in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and 17 countries/territories. It serves more than 700,000 students. Schools and districts have taken AVID methodologies and strategies and implemented them school-wide and district-wide to impact their entire communities and create articulated programs for college success.
What differentiates AVID from other educational reform programs is its astounding success rate. Of the 2013 AVID seniors reporting, 91% intended to attend a postsecondary institution - 61% in four-year institutions and 30% in two-year institutions.
