Creekview High School AVID
AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an academic system dedicated to closing the expectation gap and opportunity gap so all students are prepared and ready for college and their career.
AVID began at Creekview in 2007 and aligns with specific campus goals to accelerate and enhance the work already occurring daily.
AVID Secondary at the
AVID Secondary for grades 7-12 equips students with skills to best prepare them for college and careers. For one elective period, students receive additional academic, social, and emotional support that will help them succeed in required rigorous courses. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 to 3.5, enroll in at least one rigorous class each term, desire to be campus leaders, and then apply and interview before being accepted into the AVID Secondary course. Students accepted into AVID must set high expectations and are given the support they need to prepare for and thrive in postsecondary opportunities.

Inside the Creekview AVID Elective
AVID is an elective class each year of high school serving approximately 11% of the school population. AVID students take a course of rigor each year of high school (dual-credit, OnRamps, AP, or honors courses). It is our goal for 100% of all graduating AVID seniors to have either completed a dual-credit/OnRamps course OR completed an AP class with a corresponding AP exam second semester.
Expectations of Students in the AVID Elective:
AVID students are supported through organization tactics and all AVID students are expected to have and maintain an organization system and a planner.
Students are taught various note-taking strategies and the process by which students utilize those notes. Students will be asked to take Focused notes in their classes and will be graded throughout the year in the AVID elective.
Each Tuesday and Thursday, hired college-aged tutors work within the AVID elective class in the tutorial process. This is a small group of students with like classes discuss and receive support over coursework they struggle with. It is a Socratic, collaborative style of tutoring led by inquiry and discussion.
Community Service hours are a requirement for all students based on their grade level. These hours will be checked each nine weeks. Students are encouraged to complete community service hours on and off campus.
AVID students take a minimum of 1 field trip to a college each year and will have opportunities to take more based on good standing with grades, conduct, and attendance.
AVID students are provided opportunities for SAT, ACT, TSI, and PSAT test prep through the elective class and other out-of-class opportunities.
We believe collaboration and relationship building is one important key to success. We believe in getting to know each other and working together toward a common goal.
