LA CIMA MIDDLE SCHOOL SELECTED AS AN AVID SCHOOLWIDE SITE OF DISTINCTION

Advancement Via Individual Determination is a nonprofit that changes lives by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. It’s a K-12 college readiness system that supports students by providing access to high quality instruction and rigorous coursework. AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

AVID is an approved elective course taken during the school day. Students are usually selected to enroll in an AVID class after an application process. For one class period a day, they learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and asking probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college seem attainable.

Each year, the AVID Center selects schools that are exceptional at the implementation of AVID Schoolwide. La Cima Middle School was selected as an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction. This represents the highest level of AVID implementation fidelity demonstrating excellence in instructional practice and the promotion of college readiness schoolwide.
