AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a program designed to prepare high school students for success in four-year universities. The CHS AVID curriculum focuses on developing study, organization, and academic skills for high school and college. We also offer in-class college and career counseling, personal mentoring, tutoring, and leadership development. AVID is for students who are serious about succeeding in high school and preparing for college. Success depends on individual determination and personal responsibility.

The mission of AVID is to ensure that students:

  • Will succeed in their academic classes;
