Consumable Book Lists for the 2019-2020 Academic Year
At the beginning of each academic year textbooks are issued to each student to use at home for the remainder of the year. While at home these textbooks remain the property of Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem and require a deposit that is fully refundable upon return of the textbook in permissible condition. If you would like to purchase an additional textbook please contact the front office for ISBN information.
It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem to inspire students to develop a personal library of literary classics they can keep, annotate and return to throughout their academic careers. Therefore we encourage parents to purchase these “Classics to Keep” so that your student may graduate with an impressive library of literary masterpieces. However for families that do not wish to purchase these texts, students will be given access to an academy copy to be used as a part of the curriculum. Students should not mark in the books provided by Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem and should be returned once classwork is finished.
“Classics to Keep” are available through Barnes & Noble. If you would like to purchase these texts please see the provided titles and ISBNs. So that all students use the text aligned with the class and curriculum parents MUST purchase texts with the exact ISBN provided.
Several of the consumables are available only through the Great Hearts portal. As confirmations are received for each order, the books will be placed in your student’s locker or otherwise delivered to your student. Please go online, to the Great Hearts portal, https://anthemprep.configio.com/ShoppingCart.aspx and order your consumables early.
