Capital Metro Area AVID: Program Components


AVID supports student success in various ways. It can be compared to a funnel. It begins more broadly with the College and Career Readiness Framework and then moves to the 4 Domains of AVID Schoolwide and then ends with classroom-based instruction using WICOR.

No matter what postsecondary path high school graduates choose, students must develop certain essential skills to design their own futures: critical thinking, collaboration, reading, writing, and relationship building. The development of these skills is rooted in a belief in self. If students believe they are capable, there is foundational confidence to learn and resiliency to overcome setbacks. When educators believe in students, learning and confidence are activated. With teacher support for developing a growth mindset and the academic skills they need for future success, students grow to see their capabilities and find their own way.
