This international program is an elective class offered 9-12th grade to motivated students with college potential. The class teaches organization, study skills, college research, and the Socratic Method to promote inquiry, analysis and critical thinking. You will love the support and camaraderie among classmates. The AVID elective gives students the extra push necessary to not only help them with acceptance to four-year colleges (SAT/ACT prep, financial aid, scholarships, college applications,…) but to foster the skills necessary for them to be successful college students. For more information/data on AVID success rates see AVID all schools info flier below or view SJUSD AVID Info Video below. There is limited space within the program.
