About the Program
We Are Academic Coaches
Serving as a coach and mentor, our goal is to take an active role in developing the academic and personal strengths of AVID students within the Lubbock Independent School District. Our mission is to assist AVID students in the successful completion of college eligibility requirements, to provide academic support for students in rigorous courses, and to encourage students to enroll in a four-year college or university after high school graduation.
Through mentoring and peer group networking, the Academic Coaches improve students confidence in their academic abilities and self-assurance to achieve educational goals. The strong working partnership among AVID for Higher Education at Texas Tech University and AVID at Lubbock ISD, provide students, faculty, and staff with resources, trainings, and celebrations to accelerate student learning, and to strengthen the AVID P-16 pipeline.
