Malden Catholic views the development of life-long habits of reading as a hallmark of an educated man and encourages each student to read widely throughout the year. The school also recognizes the value of other on-going academic engagement during the summer months.
Summer reading and other intellectual activities serve to stimulate, to enrich, and to reinforce academic skills during the long summer hiatus from formal schooling. Appropriate reading, of course, also provides the best long-range preparation for the verbal college tests which students face in their junior and senior years.
Several of our academic departments help to plan summer enrichment activities for our students. For this summer our English, Social Studies, and Science Departments have required the following for each class. Required readings and assigments are listed below by grade.
