RA Long AVID Program
What is AVID?
Advancement via Individual Determination, or AVID, is a college-readiness program that equips students with the necessary tools and skills needed to be successful in a four-year university program. AVID students are taught organizational strategies and study skills, use collaboration to solve problems and receive help with college admissions and prep tests. RA Long's AVID program creates a close-knit, supportive community that helps our students build a strong foundation for their future academic, professional and personal success.
