AVID Mission Statement

  • "AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society."


  • Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities.

    San Marcos CISD welcomes the following elementary campuses into the AVID family:

    • Crockett Elementary
    • De Zavala Elementary
    • Travis Elementary

    The secondary program at San Marcos High School and Goodnight Middle School has been revitalized to reflect the new AVID College Readiness System (ACRS) that AVID introduced recently. Our goal is to implement the new curriculum and tutorials to prepare our students for college and career opportunities. SMCISD plans to integrate the remaining campuses and implement AVID district-wide.

Thanks to AVID, I am Limitless
