Summer Assignments 2016
Summer reading is a vital part of any college-preparatory curriculum. We require our students to read during the summer to foster an appreciation for good literature; moreover, we know that the very best way to develop vocabulary and a sense of language structure and usage is to read widely and deeply. Clearly, the best students are those who have discovered a love of reading early on and who continue to do so throughout their academic experience.

Skills practice during the summer helps students stay on top of and build their math skills. Summer math assignments are designed to reinforce students' progress the previous year and get students ready to enter the new academic year in August.

AP assignments for students enrolled in an AP class
Students enrolled in AP classes for 2016-2017 should click the link on the right of this page entitled “AP Classes Summer Assignments” to see if his/her AP teacher has assigned summer work for class. Not all AP classes have work assigned; therefore, if an AP class is not listed, a student may assume that there is no AP summer assignment for that class.
