AVID Elective for Middle and High School

What does AVID elective mean? Scholars First. At CCS, we are looking for scholars who want to have fun, collaborate with their peers, and prepare for the future! While we work on study skills and time-management skills, for the majority of our class we focus on building scholar agency & confidence as they find the leader within and learn about themselves. As we build essential skills needed for college & career readiness, scholars begin to own their learning and think critically in all subjects. It is crucial scholars enrolling in AVID commit to attending the weekly virtual lab to help build relational capacity and experience AVID as a class. Here, AVID scholars collaborate with one another, explore and develop their passions, and are empowered to master essential skills crucial for academic achievement and future readiness.
