Summer Reading 

Summer Reading 2020  |  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 2020 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 2020 are as follows:

Resilience: We respond to setbacks with renewed determination.
Kindness: We are generous and considerate of others.
Integrity: We do the right thing even when no one is watching.
Conscientiousness: We value hard work and are deliberate in what we do.

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.
