Belmont has one of the longest established and successful AVID models on the province. The AVID pathway starts in Spencer Middle School and students continue on that pathway from grades 9 thru 12 while on Belmont. The AVID class is linear and is backed with English Pre-AP.
Advancement Via Individual Determination is a program that prepares students in the academic middle for college eligibility. With a focus on learning organization and study techniques, questioning strategies, critical thinking, career preparation, and writing-to-learn skills, the AVID elective class also includes collaborative tutorials and enrichment activities that make attending college or university seem possible. Typically, AVID targets students with a 2.0 – 3.5 GPA (C – A/B) who have a desire to go to college and a willingness to work hard.
Students can join AVID at any grade. Please fill out the application form and send it to Mr. Bendall:
