Summer Reading

ONE SCHOOL ONE BOOK

Our 2020 One School, One Book selections is Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.  
ALL students are required to read this by the first day of school. 

Imagine you had a roadmap—a step-by-step guide to help you get from where you are now, to where you want to be in the future. Your goals, your dreams, your plans…they’re all within reach. You just need the tools to help you get there.
That’s what Sean Covey’s landmark book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, has been to millions of teens: a handbook to self-esteem and success. Now updated for the digital age, this classic book applies the timeless principles of 7 Habits to the tough issues and life-changing decisions teens face. Covey provides a simple approach to help teens improve self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure, achieve their goals, and appreciate their parents, as well as tackle the new challenges of our time, like cyberbullying and social media. In addition, this book is stuffed with cartoons, clever ideas, great quotes, and incredible stories about real teens from all over the world.
Endorsed by high-achievers such as former 49ers quarterback Steve Young and 28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens has become the last word on surviving and thriving as a teen.

It is our hope that this book will help give our students the tools they need to set goals, take responsibility and initiative, and have a clear vision of their dreams - all of which falls under the three pillars of our mission statement - academic excellence, student involvement, and faith in action.  When purchasing this book, please be sure to get the most recent version, as it has been updated for teens of the "digital age".

This is the fifth year of Loyola College Prep’s “One School One Book” initiative where we have engaged community members, faculty, students, and their families in reading one literary selection over the summer. We have found that these selections challenge our thinking, promote discussion, and ultimately draw us closer together as a school community as we all have a shared experience.
