AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) is an educational nonprofit that was established in 1980. It is a proven college-readiness system with a mission to close the opportunity gap for all students.
AVID accelerates student learning, uses research-based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.
AVID is implemented in approximately 7,5000 K-12 schools in 47 states across the US, plus schools in the Department of Defense Education Activity, Canada, and Australia. AVID trains over 85,000 educators and impacts 2 million students annually.
