AVID stands for “Advancement via Individual Determination”. It is an ACADEMIC ELECTIVE designed to both prepare (ensure that each AVID student enrolls in the required “a-g” coursework and take the tests for college acceptance) and ready (teach and instill in each AVID student the necessary academic and social skills) to maintain enrollment at the university. Each AVID student is encouraged to take the most rigorous courses possible.

Academic League

The Academic League is a group of advanced scholars whom challenge themselves with academic competitions by testing their abilities in various subjects. Each competition is made up of two fifteen minute periods which are composed of questions involving academic and social media topics. Only five team members are allowed in each round.

Career Technical Education

CTE’s main focus is to prepare students for academic achievement, career exploration, career preparation, and leadership development. The successful transition to post secondary education and the workplace will be accomplished through the principles of college and career readiness: communication, collaboration, problem-solving, professionalism, job shadowing, internships, and business partnerships.

Mar Vista High has CTE programs in Digital & Media Arts, Engineering, and Fire Science.
