What is AVID?

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.  AVID is a rigorous college preparatory program for students in grades 9-12 who have a strong desire to improve their study and test-taking skills.  This program is for highly motivated, average students with high standardized test scores who are looking to improve their GPA and attend college.  AVID is a four year elective class at Carmel High School and students receive elective credits for each semester of the class.
