Advancement Via Individual Determination
Grant Schafer, Supervisor, Community Connections
AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination, began in 1980 in San Diego, California as an academic program to help students succeed in advanced academic programs. In the three decades since it's inception, AVID has been implemented in more than 4,800 sites, including 4,891 K-12 schools and 28 Higher Ed sites around the world! Today, AVID is more than a program - it's a philosophy: Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge.
