ADVANCEMENT VIA INDIVIDUAL DETERMINATION (AVID)

Hello Grizzly Family!  We are excited to be growing the AVID program at LOHS.  2021-2022 will be our eighth year of implementation and we are enjoying watching this program develop and grow into a true success for our students.  We now have 6 AVID classes.  They consist of classes at the freshman, sophomore, Junior and Senior levels.  Our students enjoy a rigorous academic journey complete with college tutors that assist in the classrooms twice each week. They also experience college visits, college fairs and career exploration opportunities. Below is some information that gives you a better understanding of what AVID is and the purpose of the program.  The AVID students for the2021-2022 school year are now applying. Please do not delay as our spots will fill up fast.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  Awesome job to the AVID students at LOHS, CLAWS UP!!!!
