Upper School Summer Reading Information

Information on the Upper School's summer reading program is posted here as well as in the Hedge's Library page in myBaylor.  The purpose of summer reading at Baylor is to encourage students to develop a life-long habit of reading, echo the students’ classroom learning experiences, and provide opportunities for students to read classics and other texts that expand their perspectives and stimulate interest in the world around them.  

All Upper School Students will read a total of three books: two books must come from their grade level list and one book may be any title of the student’s choice. Required summer reading titles for AP and Honors classes will also count toward the three-book total.

Students should not select any texts that they have previously read, and students should submit the reading log to their advisors when they return to school in August.

The Baylor Spirit Store does not keep a selection of summer reading books in stock. All titles can be found in the Hedges Library (limited copies), your local library branch, online, or in book stores.
