AVID Interviews for 7th & 8th graders

May 21, 2020

Calling all 7th & 8th Leopards interested in taking the WONDERFUL AVID Elective class for the 2020-2021 school year! AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college readiness elective course held every day during the school day.  It is offered to students who would like to prepare to attend a college or university.   The rigorous curriculum features writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading skills (WICOR).  Furthermore, students are exposed to note-taking, study skills, test preparation, college/career planning, team building activities, and college visit opportunities.  In addition, college age and adult tutors provide tutorials twice a week in order to help students succeed in their core classes.

Any 7th or 8th grader who is interested in being part of the AVID elective at Lincoln Magnet School, must fill out the AVID Interview form. This interview and other factors such as teacher recommendations, grades, and citizenship will determine who will be placed in the AVID program.  Due to limited sections, not all students who apply will be admitted into the program. If you are chosen to be an AVID Scholar, you will receive notification by mail.
