AVIDonline AVID targets students in the academic middle - B, C, and even D students - who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential. AVID pulls these students out of their unchallenging courses and puts them on the college track: acceleration instead of remediation.

This link also provides valuable information for all in planning to get to college. Click on the Students & Parents tab at Avidonline for this information.

College Making It Happen
To be sure that your student will be ready for college, you will need to plan ahead –particularly if you want him or her to have many choices of colleges. Don’t wait until high school to think about college. Begin when your student is in middle school (junior high school) or even elementary school. Start now!
 
This handbook is intended to help middle school parents, guardians, counselors, and their students begin the college planning process. It is not designed to provide all the information that a student will need to apply to college. Such information can be overwhelming at this point in the planning process. This handbook is designed to assist you in beginning the college planning process which will continue through high school graduation.
 
Good luck, stay focused, and above all, enjoy your college planning process!
