to find out how to become an AVID Tutor.



AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination is an in-school academic support program that prepares students for college entry and success.

Students who are accepted into the AVID Elective/Connections classes in 6th and 7th grades will enter into a specialized college prep experience. AVID Elective/Connections students will receive daily instruction and support to prepare for college from a specially trained AVID Elective teacher, AVID trained teachers in content areas on their grade level and an AVID on-site Support team. 

AVID students will participate in a rigorous academic curriculum.  They will receive tutoring and support, grow leadership skills, learn strategies for organization and time management, explore colleges through research and campus visits and engage in family nights to educate and inform parents. 

For more information about our AVID Connections elective, please contact Dr. Lesia Griffin, Ms. Meredith Tongue, or Ms. Trace Dease. Applications for the 2018-2019 school year will be available on our website (right side), in Titan Talk (in the Spring), and in the front office.

AVID Process for Rising 6th Grade:

The Elkins Pointe Middle School AVID program is changing how we recruit AVID 6th graders. Next year Elkins Pointe will offer an “AVID Academy” the first semester for all 6th-grade students, which will expose them to AVID tools and resources that all students will be able to build upon to get their middle school experience off on the right note. Students will have the opportunity to apply for AVID in the Fall of 2019.  Those who are chosen will begin taking the class second semester (January 2020). 


What is AVID?

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a global nonprofit organization that operates with one guiding principle: Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge. AVID’s kindergarten through higher education system brings research-based curriculum and strategies to students each day that develop critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas.

AVID’s Impact

For more than 35 years, AVID has prepared students for college readiness and success. From its beginnings in one classroom with 32 students in San Diego, it now impacts the lives of hundreds of thousands of students throughout the United States and the world. At its sites, AVID affects leadership, systems, instruction, and culture.
