School Supply Lists
EduKit offers an easy and affordable option to ensure your scholar has all the supplies he/she will need for the new school year. Supply lists by grade level may be found below for families who would like to shop for supplies on their own.
In efforts to accommodate varied learning preferences, we are offering different school supply lists for our 10th, 11th, and 12th grade scholars. Below you will find a supply list that caters to a learning preference for binders and dividers, or a list that caters to a preference for notebooks. Please base your shopping off of only one of the lists per grade below.
Classics to Keep
It is the tradition of Great Hearts academies to inspire students to develop a personal library of literary classics they can keep, annotate, and return to throughout their lives. Therefore we encourage parents to purchase these “Classics to Keep” so that your student may graduate with an impressive library of literary masterpieces. Please do your best to acquire texts with the exact ISBN provided. This will ensure that the text aligns with our curriculum and that the entire class has books with the same features and page numbers.
As literary classics, many of the texts on our Classics to Keep lists have been made into one or more movies over the years and decades. Film is a fundamentally different medium; as a result, a film adaptation of a book always necessitates considerable differences. Having watched the movie adaptation of a text before reading it can color and diminish a students’ initial experience of the book. We encourage families to consider waiting to show their children the movie versions of our Classics to Keep until after they have read the original books in school.
Upper School Textbooks
At the beginning of the academic year, textbooks are issued to each student to use at home for the remainder of the year. The issued textbooks are to be returned in permissible condition at the end of the year.
