Academics: Reading Lists


This summer, each student in grades 6-9 is asked to choose one book from the following list to read.  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 will read a book chosen by the Director of English Language Learning, Mr. Massey, who will send them the book in June.

When we return next 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!
