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

Advancement Via Individual Determination

Leadership for College Readiness

Leadership for College Readiness training is intended for administrators to instill effective systemic change and “college-ready” culture on campuses. Structures, processes, protocols, and systems within a school have significant impacts on its culture. Over two days, participants learn what these terms mean; how they are interdependent; and how to design them in alignment with the mission and vision of their school.

Participants will become familiar with the change process, and what to anticipate when a school concentrates its efforts to reorganize the structures, processes, protocols and systems to strategically plan and give purposeful meaning to all the efforts to improve performance for all students. Participants will analyze examples of how a school might be effectively organized to assist both students and staff in being successful and supporting college readiness.

Who Should Attend


Educators, principals, site and district administrators, and leadership teams from any AVID or non-AVID K-12 schools.
