The UNC Asheville Department of Education has worked closely with Asheville City Schools to build a relationship that serves local students and their communities.   One facet of that affiliation includes the AVID program, which has had a formal relationship with UNC Asheville since 1999. AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an elementary through postsecondary college readiness system that is designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance. The AVID system accelerates student learning, uses research based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional development, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.
