What is AVID?

AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness system for elementary through higher education that is designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance. The AVID College Readiness System (ACRS) 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.

Where is AVID?

AVID is a world-wide program. We are one of four districts in the State of Michigan to proudly say we are an AVID school. We serve students in grades 6 thru 8 with the AVID program. Mrs. Katie VanSingel and Mrs. Rachael Fisher teach the program at WMAAA.
