The Road to College Success
Students involved in the AVID program at Junction City High School
develop a wide range
of skills, that contribute towards the success of their education and self motivation.
The AVID program utilizes skill building through rigorous courses. These courses help prepare students for
college and allow them experience college level classes and expectations before they graduate.
Through AVID's unique curriculum, we find that most of our students continue their education to a
post secondary institution after graduation. Students in our AVID program often receive scholarships and
other types of aid that help aid towards the advancement in their education.
What is AVID?
- A Program that teaches skills and behaviors for academic succes
- Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creates a positive peer group for students
- Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
The AVID Student Profile
AVID students must have academic potential and an individual
determination to succeed. Most of our students have:
+ Average to high test scores
+ 2.0-3.5 GPA
+ College potential with support
+ Desire to succeed
Students usually meet one or more of the following criteria:
+ First to attend college
+ Historically undeserved in four-year colleges
+ Low income
+ Special circumstances
How Can I Get Involved?
Students and parents have the opportunity to attend AVID events throughout the year, like Fall and Spring Family Retreat night. Students and parents are encouraged to attend our monthly SITE team meetings, on Thursdays. During this time, students and parents will have the chance to voice their opinion in fundraising ideas, events, and ways to make the AVID program stronger. Current AVID teachers and tutors will be there to share their progress of implementing the AVID curriculum in their classrooms, while discussing upcoming AVID programs and events.
