Applying for AVID

Families of students who are being offered an opportunity to be in the AVID class receive a letter inviting them to attend the AVID Family Information Session, which is usually held in early Spring, so they can learn more about AVID. A student information session is also held during the school day for students who received the invitation letter. Students can also be nominated by a teacher or counselor.

Attending the 
AVID Family Information Session or a teacher/counselor nomination does not guarantee selection. All students meeting the AVID Program requirements and want to apply, must complete and submit the AVID student application (linked below) and be interviewed by AVID staff to be considered for possible selection.

Applications are made available and accepted in early Spring. Interviews are held during the school day in April. Students who are selected to be in AVID are informed in time for class registrations for the following school year.
