Choose Your Future

Your Adventure 

Roxbury’s Summer Reading Experience is an opportunity for you to “CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE” as you complete your required reading this summer.  (*Note, if you are taking an honors or AP English course next year, you will find your summer reading requirement is different.  You can find it here!)

How It Works


The Benefits






  • Research shows that students who participate in summer reading are more literate than those who don’t.  (Don’t you want to be smarter in September than you were in June?)


  • Unlike “traditional” summer reading assignments, you’ll have the opportunity to choose the book(s) you’ll be reading — as well as the amount of credit you’ll start the year with.  (Want to complete the “Step One” assignment?  That’s a-okay!  Feeling ambitious?  Go for the “Step Two” and “Step Three” assignments too!)


  • It’s 2019!  That means we’ll be using digital tools (like the discussion forum and Flipgrid) to bring “summer reading” into the 21st century.
