Upper School Summer Reading 2024: Home

Welcome to Summer 2024!

Hello Upper School! As you know, we want you to read for pleasure, pursue topics of interest, discover new passions, and broaden your thinking. We also hope that you find some intellectual community in sharing books and ideas with teachers and peers alike. 

This summer, select any three (3) books, eBooks, audiobooks, or podcasts – in any language – that fulfill the following criteria:

  • The material challenges you in some way, such as reading level, an unexplored genre, an unfamiliar idea, etc. 
  • The material does not violate the Worcester Academy Core Values of Honor, Respect, Growth, Personal Challenge, and Community

As you can see under the tabs above, we have suggestions if you want them! Fiction and nonfiction lists curated by the library, and your teachers have taken time to suggest to you books and podcasts they have loved, have found inspirational, have found thought-provoking and educational, and those they have found FUN! You may take one--or many--of their suggestions, or none at all. The important thing is that this summer you find the time to read something you want to read, and engage with new information.
