AVID

Advancement Via Individual Determination

AVID is a non-profit organization that provides professional learning for educators to improve college readiness for all students, especially those traditionally underrepresented in higher education. AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.


Regardless of their life circumstances, AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. They graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them.

Currently, we have three schools that are using AVID strategies: Suquamish Elementary, Kingston Middle School and Kingston High School.
