The goal for Worcester Academy’s Summer Reading program concerns both enjoyment and enrichment for our students. We want you to read for pleasure, pursue topics of interest, discover new passions, and broaden your thinking. Additionally, we hope that you find some intellectual community in sharing books and ideas with teachers and peers alike.
All middle school students are asked to read three books over the summer -- the Middle School Community Read, their Class Read, and a book of their choice. We encourage students to read more than these three books!
On the pages of this website are book recommendations from students and faculty. Choose one of these books for your free choice read, or, you may read a book not listed here.
Read any 2 books of your choice in addition to The Crossover. Click on the blue tabs above to browse reading recommendations.
