New class readies high school freshmen for college admission

Nevada Union and Bear River high schools will offer incoming freshmen a program designed to prepare them for college admission, beginning in the fall.

Advancement Via Individual Determination is a college prep program for students who are not fulfilling their academic potential. AVID students become part of a supportive peer group that shares their goals and works with them to realize those goals.

AVID students are enrolled in classes that meet the requirements for admission to four-year colleges, while taking AVID classes that teach them strategies for learning while providing intensive tutoring.

High school students enrolled in the program for at least three years graduate and enter college at a 93 percent rate, 75 percent higher than the national average.

For more information, contact Patricia McLean of Nevada Union at 273-4431, ext. 445, or Glenda Wollard of Bear River at 268-3700.
