AVID Program

What is the A.V.I.D program at GLOW?

  • AVID is a nonprofit that changes lives by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach for teaching and learning.

  • The goal of our AVID program is to close the opportunity gap, so we can prepare all students for college, careers, and life.

  • AVID enhances our practices to make our girls more prepared for college and strengthen our teaching staff in their craft.

  • AVID is woven into the GLOW school day with school wide initiatives, engaging instructional strategies AND our AVID Elective class.

  • AVID integrates WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) into your GLOW girl's rigorous educational experience.

  • We offer AVID Elective classes for our 9th and 10th grade students. Scroll down for Application details and deadlines!

Sydney's Story

sydney- Avid spotlight

"AVID has been such an unique experience for me even though I've only been in the class for a short time. Being in the AVID class has allowed me to learn more about colleges, support my friends, and be more involved with social justice issues. The whole class is close and we can have great discussions or just goof around. It's the perfect mixture of support and challenge."

-Sydney, Class of 2023

AVID Elective Information

The AVID Elective is offered for our GLOW high school students. Students who meet the AVID program criteria are encouraged to apply in the Spring for the following Fall enrollment. Each applicant completes an application process with teacher recommendations and an interview with our school's AVID Site Team. After acceptance into the AVID program students join an AVID Elective class that meets during our Leadership Advisory block. Students engage with a rigorous AVID curriculum, join an incredible academic and social support structure with their classmates, and practice skills to extend their learning and prepare them for college and career success.
