Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID)

  • Welcome to the McKean High School AVID webpage. AVID stands for 'Advancement via Individual Determination. AVID is a comprehensive program that is available to 9th through 12th graders. The program focuses on preparing students for the rigorous courses they will undertake in a traditional four-year college. Students are assisted with course work, including high-level classes such as Honors and Advanced Placement, organization, and time management. Each AVID student keeps a binder in order to maintain organization and promote better study habits. Additionally, the program provides supports such as guest speakers, college field trips, tutoring, and community service, all of which contribute tobuilding a competitive college application. The AVID application process occurs in the spring of each school year.
