Please return to this page after April 1, for updated summer reading lists.
Summer is a great time for students to enjoy some much needed relaxation and family time. However, we do not want our students to lose ground academically during their summer break. Summer reading is a great way to keep student’s brains active and learning during this time.
All students enrolled at Midwest Academy will be required to complete a Summer Reading Assignment. This summer reading assignment will be connected to the fall curriculum and in-class assignments at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. The summer reading genre this year will be science fiction. Copies of books are available at the library, local bookstore or online.
