Summer Reading 2021

Reading List  |  Guiding Questions

Central Catholic High School summer reading brings light to our character and virtue words for the upcoming school year. Our All-School Summer Reading List for 2021 consists of six books chosen by administrators and faculty that speak to the character and values of Central Catholic High School.

The four Character Virtues for 2021 are as follows:

Fairness: We seek equity and inclusion for all people.
Forgiveness: We let go of resentment and anger.
Respect: We offer courtesy and civility to all people.
Generosity: We give of ourselves freely and joyfully.

We hope that giving readers a degree of choice in what they read will make the summer reading process more enjoyable. We hope that the thematic connections between the books will foster discussion between all members of our community. The first week of school will center on the character virtues focused through summer reading and will be topics for discussion across the curriculum.

Click here to visit our Summer Reading Website where you will find the booklist, summary information for each book, and thematic discussion questions for reflection while reading.

Check out what books our teachers have selected for their summer reading!
