Welcome to our AVID Department

New Town High School is honored to be the first and only high school in the state of Maryland to be a National AVID Demonstration School as well an an AVID Site of Distinction.

AVID is a four-year college readiness system. The AVID program at NTHS works to prepare our students for success at a four year college or university. 9th and 10th graders who are not currently enrolled in our AVID Program are encouraged to apply to be an AVID Scholar during the next school year.

For more information about the national AVID program, please visit the AVID website. If you have questions about the New Town High School AVID program, please contact Mrs. Kathy Albert, AVID Coordinator.
