Scholars enrolled at Herron-Riverside and Herron High Schools will read and annotate an engaging and challenging text that corresponds to their upcoming grade level for the 2022-23 school year. Summer reading strongly supports Herron Classical Schools’ ongoing mission to prepare students for college, engage in critical thinking, and develop world-class citizens. Summer reading also helps combat summer learning loss and better prepares students for a strong start at the beginning of the new school year.
