SUMMER READING

2019 SUMMER READING LIST
 

Summer reading is based upon the Four Pillars of St. Edward High School: 

FAITH: Formation of young men in the Holy Cross Tradition 

EXCELLENCE: An ongoing commitment to excellence in academic and co-curricular programs 

RELATIONSHIPS: A welcome, family-oriented school community that fosters relationships

SERVANT LEADERSHIP: A Christ-like commitment to genuine leadership through service to others

 

During their final English exam, students will be given a description of the summer reading assignment for their class next year.

Summer reading books will be available for purchase at the St. Edward Bookstore (bookstore pricing is beside each book below).
