• AVID is not just another program. At its heart, AVID is a philosophy that holds students accountable to the highest standards, provides academic and social support, so they will rise to meet any challenge.

    AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities. Established more than 35 years ago with one teacher in one classroom, AVID today impacts nearly 1.5 million students in 46 states and 16 other countries/territories.  

    Currently, AVID impacts the lives of students at 40 school sites in Stockton Unified School District.
