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 Upper School Students must complete the Upper School Community Summer Read. This year's Upper School read is Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
In addition to the Community Read, students must read two additional books of their choice. These books can be selected from the recommended lists on the pages of this website. Or, you may read a book not listed here.
For each choice read, students should respond to the book in one of the following ways:
