AVID Scholars Sculpting Futures

AVID Scholars Sculpting Futures

Being a very important part of many students high school careers, the AVID program at Paso Robles High is saying goodbye to its seniors this year. AVID is an elective program that helps students prepare and get themselves to college. In the past two years, 100% of all seniors in the AVID classes have gotten into 4 year colleges; this year all seniors have applied to four years.

The goal of AVID is “to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.” This class’s goal is to make sure students are college ready and to pave the way to success for students who take the class.

Mr. Steffans and Mr. LeClair, the two PRHS senior AVID teachers, have grown with the class of 2019. “They’re a great group of kids,” says Steffans, who began teaching his group when they first got to high school. He has been able to spend time and see progress throughout the four years they have spent together.

AVID opens doors for students by not only doing important in class work, but they also go on field trips to visit colleges around California. This year they have gone to UCSB and many other UC and state schools around the country. Monica Rodriguez, a graduation senior this year, will be heading to Cal Poly in the fall to attend the college of engineering.

“We were guided through signing up and practicing for the SAT and ACT exams, college application, scholarships, and recently housing arrangements,” Rodriguez said.

AVID has guided students around the country, but also many students here at PRHS, to reach their dreams, goals, and to exceed expectations.

“AVID is truly a program the put the students first over anything,” Rodriguez said.
