Welcome to AVID at St. Helens High School!
Applications are now being accepted for current 8th through 12th grade students for next year's AVID program. See the links at the left hand side of this page for more application information.
The mission of Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for career and college readiness and success in a global society. At St. Helens High School, we are dedicated to the mission that all students leave high school prepared for whatever college or career they wish to pursue. To do this, a self-selected group of students is admitted to the AVID Elective, a four-year elective course focused on building solid academic skills and providing social support and ensuring that students have prepared for and applied themselves to rigorous post-high school pathway, whether that be via college or continuing education in a career field.
