AVID – (Advancement Via Individual Determination)
AVID Higher Education consists of three initiatives:
- Student Success
- Teacher Preparation
- Career and Technical Education
These initiatives act as a holistic, integrated, college success system designed for students with the determination to succeed and for campuses and teacher education programs committed to promoting student success. In keeping with AVID’s philosophy, AHE is founded on the proposition that college students who have the will to succeed will succeed if they are challenged and given the academic and psycho–social support needed to meet that challenge.
Atlanta Technical College is participating the in the Student Success Initiative.
AVID for Higher Education’ (AHE) Student Success Initiative (SSI) is designed to support students who enter college under-prepared. SSI addresses the gaps in student performance and success at institutions of higher education and assists students by developing the skills that enable them to deal effectively with the academic, cultural and financial challenges that college creates.
