The purpose of this study was to examine whether or not the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program more adequately prepared high school students for college and career by comparing the High School Assessment (HSA) scores of AVID and non - AVID student groups. The measurement tool was the English portion of the Maryland State Department of Education’s HSAs . There was a significant ly higher achievement rate among all students in the AVID group . However, when scores were compared by gender , there was not a significant difference in the scores of the AVID and non - AVID females, while there was a significant difference in the scores of the AVID and non - AVID males. Analysis of the data from this study indicates that the AVID program is effective at enhancing student literacy skills and preparing students for meeting graduation requirements, which are necessary for college and success in the workforce.
