In the interest of continuing students' learning through the summer and preparing them well to reenter the school in the fall, Greens Farms Academy has compiled a list of summer reading and other summer academic work for students in all divisions. While some of the summer work in the Lower School is recommended, the summer assignments in 4th through 12th grade are, for the most part, required.
Please check the website carefully, as summer assignments vary by grade and by course.
Purchasing books for summer reading: Some of the summer assignments involve books, while others do not (e.g. math and science packets, movies, websites, etc.). Packets are available for download directly from the site (see link above). If a book is required as part of a Middle or Upper School summer assignment, you can see and purchase that book through our textbook provider, MBS Direct. Please click here for instructions for ordering summer reading books through MBS. Please note, only summer reading books are currently on MBS. Textbooks and materials for the next school year will be posted to the site in July. At that point, you will receive instructions in a separate email about accessing MBS and purchasing textbooks.
Course placement: For some Upper School students, course placements are still pending. Those will be finalized in July, and you will receive notification at that point.
Timing of Summer Work: Departments generally ask that Middle and Upper School students do this summer work during the last month of the summer so that the material is fresh for the start of school, but that can vary by course.
