    San Tan Foothills proudly offers the AVID Program to help all STFHS students reach their full potential.


What AVID Does

  • Simply, AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education.

How AVID Works

  • AVID brings research‐based strategies and curriculum to educational institutions in elementary, secondary, and higher education. The AVID System annually provides 60,000+ educators with training and methodologies that develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas throughout the entire campus, in what we call Schoolwide AVID.


  • - Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
    - Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
    - Creates a positive peer group for students
    - Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
    As a result, policymakers and educators now consider AVID's mission to be an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap, making college access and success available to all students.
