Summer Reading and Enrichment

The 2020 Summer Reading and Enrichment pages can be found here. Under the Summer Reading List tab you will find over 50 recommendations from SAS faculty with descriptions of the books as well as direct links to Amazon for easy ordering.   From those selections you are to choose one book. The books that have been chosen for required reading, The Poet X and Homegoing will be mailed to you shortly. Both books have been selected for multiple awards and we are so fortunate to have both authors, Elizabeth Acevedo and Yaa Gyasi visiting campus next year.

What's on Display in the MCR?

When you walk through the Main Common Room (MCR) these days you might notice a slight change in the décor.

What once was the home of A. Felix duPont’s (the School’s founder) antique gun collection, are now beautifully crafted bookshelves.

Mr. duPont’s gun collection was donated to the School by his wife shortly after his death in 1948. Cases were built and installed in the Main Common Room where his collection was on display until their recent removal. Students as well as the adult community would often comment on the oddity of storing guns in a school setting. The guns have been removed and donated to the Hagley Museum in Wilmington, DE. Hagley houses a huge amount of the duPont family’s effects and it seemed only natural and fitting for his collection to be sent there for preservation.
