Bishop Hartley's English program uses a defined research formula which enables students to develop and build upon their research skills through all four years of high school.

Students are assigned summer reading. Selected titles change each year and reflect themes relating to Bishop Hartley's Six Pillars. Students receive a list in May with the required readings for each course.
Students conduct close studies of classic and contemporary novels throughout the English curriculum. Novels are teacher-selected to complement the curriculum.
Bishop Hartley includes a Communication for Social Action component in our College Prep Composition course which allows students to investigate a
community- or state-level problem to propose a solition and share their research with stakeholders.
Bishop Hartley offers English-related clubs, including Battle of the Books, and Hooked on Books. Learn more about these clubs.
