2022 Summer Reading & Academic Engagement

Dear students and parents,

The 2021–22 school year was incredible for our literary and reading culture. Visits from acclaimed authors Tommy Orange, Angeline Boulley and Kevin Maillard catalyzed academic engagement at Convent & Stuart Hall. A small group of faculty attended the Key West Literary Seminar, and work within each of our academic departments inspired conversation and meaningful engagement.

This year feels like a critical one for our learners. Emerging from — and in many cases still encountering — a worldwide pandemic, our commitment to offer an education rooted in the unwavering values of the Sacred Heart is steadfast.  

While summer is certainly a time of relaxation and rejuvenation, we hope families will encourage students to immerse themselves in the transportive, inspiring books our teachers have carefully chosen.  Many readings and experiences outlined on our summer reading list are enrichment opportunities. However, please note that there are required readings and assignments that provide essential foundational knowledge for fall classes.

Please scroll down to review all of the reading and academic work assigned to you/your student(s) across disciplines. Enjoy your summer!

Sincerely,

The Convent & Stuart Hall Library Department with Rachel Simpson, Chief Academic Officer
