In support of Palo Alto Unified School District's (PAUSD) vision to "support all students as they prepare themselves to thrive as global citizens in a rapidly changing world," PAUSD's secondary schools have partnered with AVID National Organization.

AVID's (Advancement Via Individual Determination) mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

AVID is about acceleration, not remediation.

AVID is offered at all PAUSD middle schools as well as at both high schools. If you are interested in the program, contact your student's guidance counselor.
