Summer Reading

At Loomis Chaffee, we believe Summer Reading is an  essential and enriching part of each student’s experience.

All students are required to read three books for Summer Reading, which are assigned in order to build community, prepare students for fall classes, and encourage the pursuit of knowledge for favorite subjects.

Details about each of these requirements can be found below.

Recommended Reads

Summer is a wonderful time to read to explore your own interests. To help you discover more books to read, each department and center on campus has created a list of recommended titles that you might also enjoy.
