• Collegiate Academy Middle School AVID Program

    AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The goal of AVID is to prepare students for college and success in a global society. We use AVID to bring out the best in students and close the achievement gap. For more information about the program visit www.avid.org.

    Collegiate Academy offers the AVID program schoolwide as our campus is unique in that it is part of our district's Collegiate Pathway. This year, we have 7 AVID Elective classes total; 3 AVID classes for 7th Grade and 4 AVID classes for 6th Grade. All of our Academy Teaching and Administrative Staff are AVID Trained and practice the "AVID Way" in their instruction AND interactions with our scholars.

    OVERALL, AVID focuses on helping those students who might not otherwise get to college. Students in the AVID elective class take advanced courses and are given the support they need to succeed and prepare for achieving their college dreams.
