College Readiness

The Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Area is in the midst of a cultural shift, one in which more and more students are becoming College, Career, and Citizenship ready. Here are a couple of programs that are being implemented to provide students opportunities to practice and demonstrate their levels of readiness.

AVID: AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The basic tenet of AVID is to support the students 'in the academic middle' who are often the least-served population within a school. The goal of AVID is to increase the number of students who enroll in a four-year college by providing them strategies and support to be successful. Teachers at AVID site schools attend professional development to learn how to best implement AVID methodologies and support students.

Alignment 96792: In partnership with Kamehameha Schools, Maili Campus, the Ho`omau ka `Ike (College Access) committee is dedicated to support DOE schools in raising career awareness and college readiness. We accomplish this by collaborating with members from organizations such as Hawaii P-20, Teach for America, and the Manoa Educational Talent Search to develop relationships with community partners that are willing to support our schools' college and career readiness efforts.
