Required Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2023-2024 Grades 6-12
Over the summer, Seattle Academy students read specific course-assigned books. Teachers will integrate summer reading into the course work during the first weeks of class and likely throughout the term. For each grade-level, teachers have provided a link to a reading guide to accompany the reading assignment, which will provide any needed context and instructions. As students will use these texts at the beginning of the year, they should purchase a new or used copy to bring with them for the first days of classes.

For general questions, please contact Jason Gough, Chair of the English Department:

Additionally, we want to make sure that all students have access to summer reading texts. If you need financial support to purchase the summer reading texts for English or History, please email Jason Gough at the email address above and include the following information:

(1) Your name.

(2) Your grade level during the 2023-2024 school year and the course you are enrolled in (for example: 6th grade/English 6 or 12th grade/English 12:Books to Film).

(3) Your full address (number, street, city, state, and zip code) where your text(s) should be mailed.
