AVID brings best practices and proven methodologies to students high schools. AVID’s goal is to prepare all students in a school for college, starting with the core elective class and expanding schoolwide. 

The AVID Elective class targets students in the academic middle, who have the desire to go to college and are capable of completing rigorous curriculum using the will to work hard. Typically, AVID Elective students will be the first in their families to attend college, and many are from low-income or minority families. In the AVID Elective, students are routinely required to enroll in their school’s toughest courses, such as honors or Advanced Placement®. 

Napa High is on a Path to AVID Schoolwide, AVID transforms the leadership, systems, instruction, and culture of a school, ensuring college readiness for all students. AVID impacts students throughout the school when trained teachers use AVID strategies to influence the academic and behavioral skills of their students.
