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


This is where we celebrate the world of AVID – the places, the people and the passion – from AVID’s birthplace in San Diego, CA to Melbourne, FL to Germany to Japan, and just about everywhere in between. Here we will honor your success. We will share and learn. And we will feel connected to this great, extended family that is AVID.
