Reading great literature is one of the pillars of the Humanities and International Studies Program. Summer reading provides students an opportunity—beyond the confines of the traditional school year—to further their study of culture and ideas through literature.

Using reading lists designed by HISP teachers, students are exposed to some of the most acclaimed writers of our time.

Summer reading requirements differ by grade level. For more information, check the reading list for your specific grade.
