8th grade AVID (1st period)
  • AVID is an acronym for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The AVID system of work is designed to help students prepare for college, career, and life. AVID effects the entire Liberty campus by providing classroom activities and teaching practices that improve engagement and success for all students in every classroom. 150 students take the AVID Elective course and receive additional academic, social, and emotional support.

    As a school, teachers design lessons around the five phases of Focused Note-taking, which allows students to refer back to and interact with their notes. Lessons include WICOR strategies which are intentional practices that give students the opportunity to write to learn, use inquiry to learn, collaborate to learn, be organized to learn, and read to learn.

    AVID promotes a school wide mindset that ALL students can Enroll (into college), Enlist (in the armed forces), or Employ (by technical or trade school).

    AVID schools welcome the responsibility to inspire students and change lives.
