Starting in 2017, Central Catholic High School adopted an All-School Summer Reading List. Rather than dictating a specific book to each grade-level, each year a list of title choices is created, sometimes on a theme, and students are free to choose from that list.
There are two main reasons why:
The 2022 list consists of eight books chosen by administrators and faculty, with input from students who volunteered to aid in the process, that we feel speak to the character values of Central Catholic High School, and will be of high interest to our students.
Note to Parents, Guardians, and other Responsible Adult Caretakers
As much as we would like our students to “own” their choice, as it is a primary driver of developing a love of reading, as a responsible caretaker you can be involved in your student’s selections. . We worked hard to create a list that should have something to meet every reader’s needs, and our goal is not to force challenging reading, but to foster discussion on the theme and keep students engaged in reading over the summer.
