AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college-preparation program that is offered as an elective class to students at Marshall High School and Marshall Junior High School looking to prepare for entrance into a four-year college or university. The class is designed to help students acquire skills and behaviors they will need to do well and gain acceptance to four-year colleges and universities upon graduation from high school. 

Students are taught study skills, note-taking, time management, organization, reading, writing, collaboration, and research skills, while learning about college and career options for the future. AVID students learn both in the classroom as well as outside of classroom through field trips to colleges, universities or other cultural sites. The elective class includes time for tutorial groups, where students receive help with material from their other academic classes. AVID recruits students who are motivated to do well and are willing to work hard to make success a reality, now and in the future.

If this sounds like the right class for your student and something they would be interested in, please encourage and support them in applying to be part of the AVID College Readiness Program in MISD. If you have any questions. please contact Michelle Ates, AVID District Director, at 903-927-8732 or via email at atesm@marshallisd.com.
