Welcome to AVID at U-46

  • “AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society”

  • School District U-46 is committed to providing our students with a comprehensive high quality learning experience that challenges each student, provides them with the opportunity to apply this learning in their lives and affirms and upholds the district's values, purpose and vision.

    U-46 currently offers AVID elective courses in grades 7 through 12. All middle and high schools have an AVID Site Coordinator and an active AVID Site Team. The district also has an AVID District Director that oversees the AVID College Readiness System. U-46 had its first AVID Senior graduating class during the 2012-2013 school year, which marked the end of the 4th year of AVID implementation.
