The class also meets for tutorial lessons for two days a week where students study English, math, science and social studies with tutors.

Motivational days provide career and college activities, field trips to nearby colleges and universities as well as having guest speakers from other colleges and professionals.

Students must have good SBA scores, GPA of 2.0 to 3.5 in non-weighted classes, decent attendance record, and the desire to work on challenging courses which include honors classes and AP.

Avid gives priority to students who come from economically disadvantaged families as well as students who are the first in their family to make it likely to college.
