What is AVID?

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is an international organization dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and dreams of attending and being successful in college. Students are part of a daily class where they receive support in academic classes, as well as instruction in the essential skills required to be successful in college and beyond.

Students are often enrolled in AVID from the time they enter high school until the time they graduate. They travel with their teachers at Vacaville High School as they progress from grade to grade.

Currently, there are 8 classes of AVID students:

9th Graders: Ms. Van Buskirk & Mr. Wolfman

10th Graders: Mrs. Reimer & Mr. Bassey

11th Graders: Ms. Jones & Mr. Wright

12th Graders: Mrs. Ferrante & Mrs. King
