Success Stories

AVID Success

Designed to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges, Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a national college-readiness system serving over 700 students in Lawrence Township. The Foundation has funded the program since 2000 with significant support from our partner, USA Funds. The AVID program successfully prepares high school students who are “in the middle” for post-secondary education. The program has a 98% high school graduation rate and 95% of AVID graduates pursue post-secondary education.
