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.

Scholars must read the two books assigned to their grade level before school begins in August. During the first
weeks of school, all scholars will participate in class discussions and complete writing assignments based on
these books.
