Acceleration NOT Remediation



AVID + Schoolwide = Student-wide impact

AVID students and Right Moves For Youth participants had the opportunity to  tour Johnson C. Smith University on October 30, 2017. In addition to touring the campus, students were able to visit the Black History Exhibit entitled “Courage: The Vi

sion to End Segregation the Guts to Fight for it”.  Student were instructed by the tour guide to come away with at least one thing they learned.  As we exited the campus library, Miss Alexis, our tour guide, asked students for his/her fact. Our DHA students also learned about the academic programs currently offered at JCSU. AN added bonus to our college experience was to  dinin the cafeteria on campus. Our students were highly engaged as they walked the campus, sat in a lecture hall and asked questions. This experience provided a college-ready mindset for all the students who participated
