Summer Reading

The Summer Reading Program for the 2022-2023 year will include a school-wide experience in which all students and faculty will read the same text.

The school-wide book chosen for this year is Anthony Ray Hinton's The Sun Does Shine. Mr. Hinton, who was arrested and placed on death row for 30 years for two murders he did not commit, discusses the power of hope and his faith in God as he sought a way to live well, build authentic friendships, and ultimately gain his freedom. Our rising juniors and seniors will recall Mr. Hinton from his powerful keynote address during the 2021 Jesuit Day of Community and Action.

If you are in Honors English I, Honors English II, AP English III, or any senior English class, you have additional summer reading for your English class. See our Summer Reading LibGuide for details.

Please email any questions to our administrative team at viceprincipals@jesuitportland.org.
