Welcome to the AVID Program!



Advancement Via Individual Determination
And that’s exactly what this program is all about!
Students currently in the AVID program at their intermediate school may continue in our program with a GPA of 2.0-4.0. New students who have an intermediate school GPA between 2.00 and 3.5 and have strong potential to attend a four-year university may also apply to the AVID program.  AVID students enroll in a rigorous academic program, including four-year university preparation, honors and Advanced Placement classes and CTE courses to prepare them for direct entry in to a four-year university upon graduation from high school.
Interested in applying?  Contact Mrs. Blandford at sblandford@ggusd.us

The
Challenge
Today, to achieve the “American Dream” more students must complete their education past high school. Not only do three-quarters of the jobs in the 21st century require education and training beyond a high school diploma, but the average worker with a bachelor’s degree will earn approximately $1 million more than a worker who only has a high school diploma over the course of a lifetime. A generation ago, the United States led the world in college completion. Today, we’re 13th, and falling behind in the race to educate our children to be competitive in today’s global economy.
