Summer Reading - Class of 2015 & Class of 2016


In preparation for the Veritas Program’s theme for the 2013-14 Academic year, the sophomore and junior classes will read books on recent military conflicts and the impact of war on an individual and society. These works can contain graphic details and language. It is very important for our students to search for truth, and when we can do this with supporting conversations from parents, teachers, and fellow students, our young men can place value and meaning on the experiences of others. We hope that these works begin conversations about the reality of wars in our world and the gratitude that we owe to military men and women. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Academics Office at extension 159.


Please read all three works and be ready for a test at the beginning of the school year:
