It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Archway Scottsdale 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 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 Archway Scottsdale and should be returned once classwork is finished.
Consumable Books and Workbooks used at Archway Scottsdale:
The following grade level materials will be used for the 2016-2017 school year at Archway Classical Academy Scottsdale.
Kindergarten-Third Grade: Copies of grade level literature books will be provided for each child to use throughout the year for Kindergarten – Third Grade students.
Fourth Grade: The fourth grade students will begin to develop a personal library of books that they mark in, keep and return to during their time at Great Hearts, and treasure for years to come. We call these books “Classics to Keep”. Your fourth grader’s class will utilize these classics during the upcoming school year. Parents and students are strongly encouraged to purchase these books through the fourth grade consumable list for their own personal collections, so that they can mark in them and keep them, allowing students to develop their own impressive personal library of classics over the course of their academic career with Great Hearts. For families who do not purchase the texts, their student will be given access to a copy of these books as part of their curriculum. Students should not mark in these books provided by Great Hearts, and will be asked to return the books in good condition once their class has finished working with the book.
The grade level consumable orders consist of other workbooks, textbooks, and materials used throughout the school day. While we ask that parents consider contributing to offset the cost of these consumable workbooks/textbooks that have to be purchased each year, a full set of the workbooks and textbooks will be provided to all students on the first day of school. For families who do not purchase the workbooks and textbooks, their student will be given access to a copy of these books as part of their curriculum. Students should not mark in textbooks provided by Great Hearts, and will be asked to return the books in good condition once their class has finished working with the book.
For the convenience of our families and also in an effort to reduce the overhead/cost of consumables, ACS orders materials directly from the suppliers, often with discounts for bulk purchasing or free shipping. They will be shipped to the school and delivered to your child’s classroom prior to the first day of school. However, families may purchase books and other school supplies from whichever vendor they choose and are welcome to shop for bargains elsewhere! We only ask that all books match the ISBNs listed on our website. This ensures that students can all follow along on the same page when reading, discussing, and working in class.
Please note directions for purchasing consumables from ACS. When ordering, please complete a separate order form for each child attending for the 2016-2017 school year, attach a check for the total amount made out to Archway Classical Academy Scottsdale (ACS) and return the order to your child’s classroom teacher or the school’s office.
