Supporting AVID

LEEF also supports college field trips for all LISD middle school students enrolled in the AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) program, giving these students a chance to visit several college campuses and, perhaps for the first time, realize that college is an attainable goal. Last year, almost 280 LISD students representing Henry, Wiley, Running Brushy, Leander, Cedar Park and Canyon Ridge middle schools met with representatives from Austin Community College and Concordia University, giving them the opportunity to experience college life. This year, middle school AVID students from all 7 LISD middle schools will have the opportunity to explore post-secondary education and to “dream big.”
