Summer Reading List

Saint Dominic Academy has prepared assigned reading for all students in the subjects of English and Religion, as required. It is every student’s responsibility to read her assigned books over the summer vacation.  Assessments will be given in classes during the first weeks of school. It is advised that students keep a journal for their summer reading assignments, so they can look back on their thoughts and notes before school begins in September. Happy Reading!
