It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Archway Cicero 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 Archway Cicero and should be returned once classwork is finished.

“Classics to Keep” are available through the vendor of your choice. 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.
