Advancement Via Individual Determination
 
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college-readiness system designed to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges. 
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.
