The AVID Elective is first and foremost a college readiness course. Students are selected for this course because they show potential to not only enroll and succeed in rigorous courses, but to be on track to attend any college.  Students in the AVID Elective enroll in rigorous courses and receive the support needed to succeed in those courses by building and practicing study skills, developing tutorial teams, and emphasizing organizational strategies. In addition, students enrolled in the AVID elective go through the college application process in a structured and collaborative atmosphere--writing personal statements, completing applications, reviewing scholarships, and filling out the FAFSA.

Lincoln hopes to build the AVID program by encouraging teachers to use AVID Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organizational, and Reading strategies in their content area classrooms.  In addition, we plan to add AVID Elective courses at all grade levels.
