Madrid AVID Program

The AVID program is designed to meet the needs of students who are academically “in the middle”, having a 2.0 to 3.5 GPA, and are typically underrepresented in higher education. AVID prepares students to enter a 4-year university upon graduation from high school by enrolling them in rigorous coursework while providing the support necessary to achieve academic success. Serving roughly 10% of the Kranz population, AVID teaches skills and strategies that assist students in becoming confident and independent learners, as well as critical thinkers.

AVID students receive weekly instruction in reading, writing and study skills, as well as organization and time management. Additionally, they take part in small group tutorials, which allow them to work collaboratively to solve problems and further their higher-order thinking. Monthly guest speakers give students insight into a variety of professions they may enter as adults, including medicine, law, education, law enforcement, and business. Quarterly field trips serve to expose them to university life, while expanding their world-view. Most importantly, AVID students are provided an environment in which they receive continuous support from both teachers and peers.
