YOUR PASSION. OUR FUEL.
Teachers are inherently passionate about education. AVID helps teachers shift from delivering content to facilitating learning, resulting in an inquiry-based, student-centric classroom. These elements are at the core of our approach to closing the opportunity gap.
Schools today include students of diverse cultures, languages, and backgrounds. AVID helps teachers relate to all students.
AVID teachers know that all students are capable, often challenging many core beliefs.
COLLABORATION, INQUIRY, AND ORGANIZATION
Over 6,000 schools recognize these as AVID strategies, not because we invented them, but because we show how they can come alive without being prescriptive.
LAYERS ON EXISTING CURRICULUM
AVID shifts the manner with which teachers facilitate learning without layering on a new curriculum. Teachers have the flexibility to add tools from AVID to augment learning of any subject.
"The goal of education in America must be for the purpose of teaching all of our students to the very highest levels—for lifting up all people."
—Mary Catherine Swanson, AVID Founder
