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.
