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

What is AVID?

AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) is an academic support system that accelerates student learning and prepares students for success in four-year universities.

AVID places academically average students in advanced classes to ensure that they are achieving at the highest level of academic success possible.

AVID focuses on the most rigorous possible curriculum and aligns with the Common Core Standards.

AVID offers tutoring, college and career exploration, mentoring and opportunities for leadership development.

AVID is for students who are serious about succeeding in school and who want to make a productive contribution to society.

Who is an AVID Student?

AVID students are students in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support. These students often are not realizing their full potential academically.

NBTHS has adopted the goal of identifying these students and helping them to realize their full potential. Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year we have created a new AVID elective course for students beginning in Grade 9 and designed to provide them with the support necessary to effectively prepare them for admittance to a 4 year college or university upon graduation.

Please check out the AVID national website for more information at:


Admittance into this course is through an application process in the spring of each year. Please check this site frequently for more information or contact one of the members of the site team listed below:
