Advancement Via Individual Determination Program
AVID is a college readiness system (ACRS-AVID College Readiness System) is designed to increase the number of students who enroll in and persist in four-year colleges. Today, AVID has been adopted by approximately 4,800 schools in 48 states, the District of Columbia and 16 countries/territories, and serves more than 425,000 students, grades 4-12 and at the postsecondary level. The AVID College Readiness System (ACRS) incorporates three distinct components - AVID Elementary, AVID Secondary (Elective) and AVID Postsecondary. Each component addresses the needs of students to help bridge the path from elementary school through postsecondary completion.
