AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. This program provides special importance on developing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills. With these
Not only AVID helped my grades it also helped me be more organized, confident and a hard-working student. Being in AVID can also help me succeed my goals for the future. My goals for the future is to get into Lee Early College, later transferred into UNC at Chapel Hill to become a teacher and with AVID it would make it easier financially. To everybody, AVID might mean to them as Advancement Via Individual Determination but to me,
AVID is a program not intended for everyone. This program exposes you to a variety of skills and mastery for adolescents desiring to attend college. Avid focuses around organization, teamwork, and for you to critically think. These skills are new to many and are provenly beneficial, however these skills do not favor those that have already had these skills and are show casing their full potential. Therefore, Avid is not for me since it interferes with my academic courses, mastery of avid skills and would not be beneficial for me because I have gained much of the skills and would rather interfer than assist.
AVID an education opportunity An educational opportunity that I have taken advantage of is AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) a program geared to help students get to college and to prepare them for college, influenced me to take charge in my education and my path to college. I started AVID as a 8th grader. As a first generation bound college student; I felt lost. My family had no previous experience with college so they would not be able to help me. I felt like all the weight of school and college was on my shoulders, a 14 year old left seeking opportunities that would help achieve the American dream “college”.
I have learned great time management skills, I learned different ways of studying material to be able to understand it, I have learned to never give up and the work you put into something results in the outcome. I have gained many experiences by attending different colleges and learning from different instructors in different formats. I have gained experiences personally from life events that have given me the drive and motivation I have today. I have completed my BSN program all online so I have great experience with online programs.
Fresh new high school seniors are ready to embark on the journey of choosing of a college to attend. These students are filled with fear of choosing the right one or else their lives "will be ruined forever". However, students can be rest assured knowing that universities would never lie to them and that they only want what 's best for them, right? Sometimes that may not be the case. Universities are known as a place of academics but what happens when all of that changes?
This program membership will open new doors for me and make my high school and college experiences so much smoother. I think I will really benefit from having the college courses intermixed with my high school classes because I will be learning higher level information along with the high school work to challenge myself in Montco while having time in Pottstown High School to work on my electives. The program would keep me focused on
The college has helped me in many ways not only with my education. One example of this is I have been able to work the whole time that I have been attending classes. This allowed me to save enough money that now when I transfer to NIU in January with my associates degree, I will be able to pay for it in full without taking out student loans. This was one of my fears be for going into college was that I was going to be in debt after. ECC has helped my accomplish at least two of my goals while I was here, get a good education and not have to take out a student loan.
Picking the right college for me is more about the price aspect rather than having the “college experience”. Bowling Green State University for commuting students is around 10,600 for one full year ("Bowling Green State University."). I find that having an affordable tuition cost is more of a better outcome in the long run for your future. While Bowling Green State University is more affordable, Towson is the complete opposite. Towson is around 36,300 for a full year for out of state tuition ("Towson

After reviewing the course catalog and seeing the types of classes offered, I believe this program will prepare me to reach my goals. I also have a lot to offer the program including coming from a diverse background, my personal experience, and my work
The classes have made me focus a lot on my studies and how to ration out my time properly to do well in the class. Thus, making me better at time management and also improved my study skills. Last year i was inducted into NHS, which has made me a lot more responsible. I’ve had to volunteer in the community which is actually great to experience.
Changes I have grown academically because I have learned how write essays better. When Ms.DeVries was here she helped me a lot with my writing and gave me a strategy to catch my mistakes quicker. No Red Ink has helped quite a bit. I have been reminded of a lot of grammar rules thanks to No Red Ink and I have found out how to use punctuation properly. I have also gotten better at problem-solving in Algebra 1.
I have gained knowledge because I enrolling in higher level classes such as honors and AP classes. They changed me by having a better understanding of how college is going to be like for me in the future. Some honors and AP classes I have taken are: Geography, computer science, Spanish, pre-calculus, anatomy, U.S history, statistics, and government. All the preparation of my classes, teachers, and the programs I have participated in have helped me to know that I can go to college and if I try I know can be successful. I was in AVID my 7th and 8th grade years and in the Scholars program during my freshman year, but my second year of high school, I decided it was best for me to manage my way out of the Scholars program because I preferred
