Summer Assignments

Summer readings and assignments at Benedictine help our students prepare for the rigor of the upcoming school year. Students are encouraged to begin summer readings and assignments early. 

The summer readings and written assignments for the 2020-2021 school year can be found in the Summer Reading List and Assignment catalog provided below. All Benedictine students are required to read two books for their English course and one to two books for their History course. Advanced Placement courses require additional written assignments which are located within the catalog as well.


If there are any questions related to the summer readings and/or assignments please do not hesitate to reach out to the teacher for the course or Amanda Esparza, Academic Dean at
