All reading courses can be taken for credit and/or skill-building purposes.

At the time of application, parents are asked to submit complete school records which should include a measure of the student’s current reading ability. All students enrolled in reading will be administered a Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test at the beginning and the end of the program.

In addition to in-class activities and out-of-class exercises for each student in the reading program, all students are expected to read a minimum of one hour per day from a book chosen in conjunction with both the reading teacher and the student. The purpose of this additional reading is to help students develop the habit of reading and to learn to read for pleasure. Books include fiction, adventure, mystery and sports stories. Informal comment is encouraged as a student progresses through the book, but no written review is demanded. Most students will read approximately 30 pages per day.
