St. Andrew’s believes that summers should be both
rejuvenating and academically fruitful.
We value rest and play as essential ingredients for student health and
creativity. We also value continued
intellectual development in the “off-season” of the academic year. Our summer assignments are designed to
aid in that development by maintaining skills and fostering intellectual
in the lower and intermediate schools will be given a summer reading list and
teacher instructions for any accompanying projects.
in the middle and upper schools should expect to be assigned summer reading for
year-long English and History courses, as well as a summer work packet for Math
courses beginning at Algebra I and above. AP Language students are also
assigned summer reading, and AP Art Studio students are expected to work on
reading assignments and Math packets must be completed before the first day of
class. Although no writing
assignments are given over the summer, students in English and History courses should
expect to be assessed on the reading material after the first day of class.
Reading guides are provided for all English & History
texts. Students should reflect on
the questions and topics listed in the guides, as this will assist them in reading actively. Written responses to the guide questions
are not required.
Math packets are available online (see link below). All problems should be completed in the
packets themselves. Students are
expected to bring the completed packets with them on the first day of class.
