High School Summer Reading List

Summer 2017


Dallas Academy encourages students to continue reading throughout the summer. A summer reading list is provided below for students in the ninth through twelfth grades. Your child may choose one book over the summer to read for extra credit from their rising grade level. Teachers will give an assignment, quiz, or project the week that students return in August. Students who successfully complete the assignment will receive a reward as allocated by their teacher.
