Summer Reading - Vermont Commons School Skip to main content

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. Take a look at the Vermont Commons School Summer Reading Letter and Assignments 2022.

“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.

Students emerge from their time at Vermont Commons School intrinsically motivated to seek out their role for improving the world, with the skills and competencies to do so.
