Summer Reading

Over the summer, students are provided with a reading list. Students are asked to choose two books to read and are required to read a “common text” that will be discussed in the fall at Common Text Day. Take a look at the 2018 School Summer Reading List.

In addition, take a look at our 2018 Summer Reading Letter & Assignments.

“What a wonderful school Vermont Commons School is. I wish every school in the country could have a staff, administration, and student body as engaged and friendly as yours.  The students are the most brilliant I’ve ever met. What a pleasure to visit. Thanks!” – Howard Frank Mosher, author of A Stranger in the Kingdom.

Scholarship. Community. Global Responsibility.

At Vermont Commons School, our goal is to engage students with their world. We achieve this through programs and a curriculum grounded in local and global involvement.
