AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college-readiness program designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. It is already established in many Fulton County high schools, where it has increased both graduation rates and the number of college-bound students.
With high dropout rates among students in the academic middle, the Foundation, the Riverwood Administration, and the Faculty have taken steps to increase Riverwood’s graduation rate and help all students prepare for a college education. We are now in our fourth year of the AVID program at Riverwood and will have our first AVID students graduating in the Spring of 2018. We are excited to see these students graduate and go on to pursue a college education!
