AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. For more information, please visit

The AVID College Readiness System is currently implemented in every BSD secondary school (middle, option and high schools). AVID is a schoolwide approach to curriculum and rigor, a targeted approach supporting students who identify as first generation, underrepresented on college campuses, qualify as low income or have special circumstances and ongoing professional learning for educators.
