Welcome to our AVID Department

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. For more information about the national AVID program, please visit

New Town High School is the first and only high school in the state of Maryland to be a National AVID Demonstration School. 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.

If you have questions about the New Town High School AVID program, please contact Mrs. Kathy Albert, AVID Coordinator.
