The summer reading program at Maranatha Christian Academy is designed to inspire literacy in our students. All students entering grades 1-12 are required to complete a summer reading assignment to maintain reading skills developed over the school year and to introduce students to great books. Assignments are designed to keep students on a reading track to success.  Reading assignments are tailored to the needs of each individual grade level. In May, all assignments are sent home with students and are posted on the school website and Schoology. These assignments and reading requirements are to be completed over the summer by the beginning of the next school year.
