Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID)

March Middle School offers the Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) program as an elective to qualifying students. The program targets students with a grade point average ranging from 2.5 to 3.5, and who may be the first of their family members to attend college. AVID equips students with the skills required to be successful in post-secondary education. Communication skills, writing in particular, are strongly emphasized. Organizational, study, and note-taking skills are key elements of the college preparation process.
