• Introduction

    The AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program is an important resource for students who may face barriers to academic success. In Yelm Community Schools, the AVID program is offered at Ridgeline Middle School, Yelm Middle School, and Yelm High School. AVID seeks to close the achievement gap by providing academic support and resources to students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education, such as low-income, first-generation, and minority students. The program emphasizes skills such as critical thinking, organization, and effective communication, and provides support through tutoring, mentoring, and academic counseling. AVID helps students develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed academically and prepares them for college and career success. By providing a supportive and engaging learning environment, AVID helps students overcome obstacles to academic success and ensures that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Through its commitment to academic excellence and equity, the AVID program is making a positive difference in the lives of students and communities across the country.
