• AVID Center: General Help & Academic Coaching

  • AVID Learning Specialists are here for you!


    As your academic coaches, we can help you adjust to online learning, get you connected to the right resources, help you make a useful study schedule, teach you how to prepare for exams, and more. It’s our job to teach you all the “hidden” info about college so that you can be more successful. Just let us know you need help and we can make a plan. You can ask us any questions- if we don’t know the answer, we’ll connect you to the person who does.
