What is AVID?Top of Page

AVID is a four year course designed to prepare students for success at a four-year college. AVID focuses on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading skills of our students. The typical AVID student is motivated to succeed, but may need some extra support to discover their full potential. AVID students are usually in the academic middle with GPAs somewhere between 2.0 and 3.5. Many of our students will be first generation college students and need help to learn the expectations of college. While we typically look for students that fit these descriptions, Carlmont tries to make room for any student that could benefit from the support of the AVID community at our school.
We are currently reviewing AVID applications for the 2017-2018 school year. We hope to contact our new AVID students by the end of June.
