Academics: Reading Lists

Each spring, students entering grades 6-9 are asked to choose one book to read from the summer reading list.  Parenthetical recommendations are an indication of reading level and possible content, but are not intended to exclude more ambitious readers. Most of our incoming international students read a book chosen by the Director of English Language Learning, Mr. Massey.

When we return in the fall, students and the faculty member sponsoring the book will meet and discuss it in depth. There is no writing requirement for the reading, but students should feel free to keep a writing journal and/or to take notes in the margins of the book. Happy reading!
