Date:2008

Short Description:The BC AVID intervention aspires to increase access to PSE for high school students who experience achievement-related barriers that prevent them from accessing post-secondary education (PSE).
Annotation:The BC AVID intervention aspires to increase access to PSE for high school students who experience achievement-related barriers that prevent them from accessing post-secondary education (PSE). These barriers could include only average grade performance, the completion of unsuitable courses and lack of school engagement, focus or support to excel academically. BC AVID aims to familiarize students with advanced academic study and tutorials and stimulate them through other supportive activities, with the objective of enhancing their academic proficiency and readiness to access a postsecondary program.
