Phoenix Union’s newest small specialty school is a unique collaboration with the Wilson Elementary School District, built upon the foundation of the highly successful AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) College Readiness System.
AVID is a college readiness system designed to provide students in the academic middle - B, C and even D students - who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard, with structure and support, access to rigorous curriculum and preparation for entrance into a four-year university. AVID has a proven track record in bringing out the best in students, and in closing the achievement gap.
Through the AVID system and a committed team of trained AVID educators, all students will attain the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully enter a four-year university, persist through rigorous college course work, earn a college degree, and utilize their education for the betterment of a global society.
