  • Ethnic Breakdown of AP Test-takers AVID vs. NationalOpening access to Advanced Placement courses for all students, regardless of ethnicity or economic background, is essential to leveling the academic playing field. AVID students, who take many AP tests every year, show greater ethnic diversity than AP test-takers do overall. The proportion of Latinos taking AP exams is over five times higher among AVID students than among U.S. students overall.

  • Completion of 4-Year College Entrance RequirementsAVID students complete university entrance requirements at a much higher rate than their non-AVID peers.

  • AVID Graduates96% plan to enroll in a college or university68% plan to enroll in a four-year university28% plan to enroll in a two-year college83% of parents have less than a four-year college degree
