AVID program

Covina-Valley Unified School District has adopted the AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) program, a national system of college readiness, which helps to increase learning and academic performance. The program is for students in elementary grades through higher education to aid in achieving their goal of attending college. Sophomore AVID students were given a tour of Cal State Fullerton, UC Irvine, Cal State San Marcos, San Diego State, University of San Diego, and UC San Diego campuses. The purpose of the trip was to give AVID students exposure to non-local universities they may not have been able to visit in the future.[2]
