The AVID program will be taught exclusively through an AVID homeroom. This will allow the AVID trained teachers to use AVID strategies in all subjects.
AVID means Advancement Via Individual Determination. The AVID program is intended to support grade 8 and 9 students “in the middle” who probably have the ability to go on to post secondary education (college, university, poly tech or apprenticeships) but who lack some of the pre-requisite skills. The AVID program provides rigorous academic coursework, as well as an elective where skills and strategies for success in the classroom are taught. Application forms are available at the “Forms” section of our website.
