AVID - Advancement via Individual Determination

This year Stage 2 and Stage 3 are implementing AVID. Most of the 3-6 staff have completed various levels of professional learning, to implement AVID strategies in the classroom this year.

AVID stand for ‘Advancement via individual determination’. The program focuses on the students developing a positive mindset and to become independent learners.


‘To close the achievement and opportunity gaps by preparing all students for secondary education and beyond, skills development and work readiness so they can participate in a global community as productive citizens.’ 


‘If we hold all students and teachers accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, they will rise to the challenge.’


AVID is an education program designed to boost the academic results of students regardless of their background or disadvantage. Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) believes that any student, given the right strategies and support, can be prepared for future study and work opportunities.


AVID understands that the first step to improving a student’s performance is teaching them how to learn. Rigorous content alone will not bring students success if they are not equipped with the habits and strategies that help them to process and digest information.

The AVID program’s main focus is to provide students, teachers and schools with the expertise and support to build this foundational first step. In doing so, students build confidence in their own abilities and become determined to achieve the results of which they are truly capable.
