Burr and Burton Academy's Summertime Reading

BBA Summer Reading Assignments

Incoming Freshmen, AP students, Honors Model UN students, and Mountain Campus students have specific reading assignments which can be found here.

Students in Grades 10-12 not enrolled in an AP class or Honors Model UN should choose one of the books on this list to read. Each book is sponsored by one or more faculty members. When we return to school in the fall, faculty members will host book discussion groups with the students who have read their sponsored selection.

A limited number of the summer reading books will be available for circulation at the Manchester Community Library. All BBA students are eligible for a Manchester Community Library card. In some cases, there are downloadable audiobooks available. If students have any difficulties finding a copy of their book or need help accessing an audio version, they should email Mrs. Putney.
