  • LAUSD is committed to the goal of ensuring that all students graduate equipped with knowledge and skills for college and career success. AVID is one of the support systems that many District schools offer to advance learning and ensure that all LAUSD students have access, support and success in academically challenging coursework.

     

    AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a sixth through twelfth grade system that prepares students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility and success. Typically, AVID students are the first in their families to attend college and are from student populations historically underrepresented in higher education.

     

    AVID has a proven record in bringing out the best in students and closing the achievement gap. The goal of AVID is to provide students with high expectations, encouragement, day-to-day help through the AVID elective class, and a vision of college as an attainable goal.

     

    AVID embraces the philosophy that “effort creates ability.” Thus, it is referred to as Advancement Via Individual Determination or AVID from the Latin root word “avidus” meaning “eager for knowledge.”
