If you choose, you may purchase any of the books from a different source as long as both the ISBN and edition match what is listed.
Both the English Department and the Upper School History Department have assigned summer reading for students. Please see the links below for guidance from the English Department on summer reading and the link below regarding Upper School History summer reading and the accompanying assignment that must be turned in prior to the start of the school year.
