Students from across ACPS have been taking part in campus visits at various colleges including Christopher Newport, Marymount University, University of Maryland, Hampton University, Howard University, George Mason University, Georgetown, Old Dominion University, James Madison University, Mary Washington, Morgan State, Norfolk State, Northern Virginia Community College, Virginia Tech., University of Virginia, and William and Mary. Each quarter, students take part in a college or cultural trip to provide enriching experiences. Our students continue to develop their leadership and communication skills through mentoring and speaking engagements with younger AVID students. Students in grade 6-8 generally visit local colleges and universities, whereas AVID students in grades 9-12 visit targeted higher education locations based on students' interest. By the time a long-term ACPS AVID student graduates, he/she may have visited more than twenty colleges or universities.
