Placement recommendation:  AVID students challenge themselves academically in order to be eligible for four-year university.

Students will focus on transitioning to high school life and improving the foundational learning skills necessary for a college preparatory curriculum.

Students engage in collaborative tutorial sessions to gain a greater understanding of material in their content area classes. This is not a time spent doing homework.
