Required Summer Reading Program for Haas Hall Academy Campuses, 2019-2020
Haas Hall Academy’s summer reading program is a school-wide initiative developed and supported by the
faculty as an integral part of a well-rounded education. The summer reading list provides scholars with the
opportunity to expand their horizons by reading books they might not otherwise read.
