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.
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.
