• What are the requirements to take an AVID class?
    AVID programs are for student’s grades 6-12 who are not necessarily college-bound, but who are willing to work hard and push themselves, and will hopefully become college-bound by the end of their high school career. AVID looks for students who have:
    • Passed STAAR 
    • 2.0-3.5 GPA in non-weighted classes
    • a good attendance record
    • maintain a supplied 2-3 inch binder (anything smaller will not work)
    • the desire and determination to take challenging courses, such as AP and honors classes, and do well in them 
    Also, those who are the first college-bound students in their families, historically under-represented in four-year colleges, or economically disadvantaged are given priority in the application process.
