The summer reading program at Suffield Academy promotes an extension of the school’s diverse educational experience. Suffield encourages its students to read outside of the classroom and beyond the school year and values the shared experience of all faculty and students reading an annually selected common text. The program provides opportunities for students and faculty time to reflect on and explore ideas outside the Suffield community. At a minimum, students are asked to read the community text in addition to one to two books from the school’s annually updated summer reading list. This summer’s chosen community text is Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and will be used in support of the 2020-2021 school theme of empathy.
