​AVID’s Mission: AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by
preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society

AVID’s Website:

Here West Charlotte High School we are moving toward AVID School-wide, which implies that students (whether or not they are choosing college as their post-secondary goal) will be prepared for college and career by utilizing WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) strategies.

AVID’s proven learning support structure, known as WICOR , incorporates teaching/learning methodologies in the critical areas of Writing to Learn, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading to Learn. WICOR provides a learning model that educators can use to guide students in comprehending concepts and articulating ideas at increasingly complex levels (scaffolding) within developmental, general education, and discipline-based curricula. Furthermore, the WICOR model reflects and promote expertise and attitudes that will serve students well in their academic lives and career.
