We are also home to AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination - a program designed to help students prepare for and succeed in college through high expectations and by instilling the skills and habits they need. AVID is both an elective course opportunity and a building-wide initiative. Students enrolled in the AVID elective course have special opportunities, including working with college tutors, participating in enrichment and motivational activities, and spending time planning for their futures so college becomes an expectation. Nationally, 93 percent of students who participate in AVID go on to enroll in college, including more than 60 percent at a four-year college or university. Read more about AVID at Nicollet.
