The AVID program is an elective class offered at Stout Middle School for 7th and 8th graders. The class focuses on making sure students have the skills to be college ready. It focuses on study skills, note-taking skills, relationship skills, and has college tutors come in weekly to help students with their classwork and study skills. Usually, students are given paper copies of the application for the AVID program. This year, with us being unable to hand out and collect applications, students are invited to apply online.
