My greatest academic achievement in high school was maintaining the credentials for AVID. For my sophomore and junior years I was in a program called AVID. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination to show how students have an affect on their own learning process. To stay in the program there is a gpa requirement minimum grade requirement and a maximum amount of missed homework assignments. The trifecta was a hard load to handle because I had not exactly met the standards before. The program is even awarded with a group of three tassels to wear during graduation but I was not able to earn them as I could not graduate from a school where the program was exercised.
