Accelerated Reader

The Accelerated Reader program is a motivational reading program. Saint Andrew Catholic School students participate in this program and take AR quizzes on books they have read. Students are assigned reading goals (number of points) based on the STAR reading assesment (Retesting each trimester—next will be in January). Students retest at assigned intervals during the school year. Students that reach or surpass their reading goal receive motivational rewards and incentives as part of the program throughout the year.


We can also ask the parents to help to encourage their child to read 20 to 30 minutes daily during the Christmas holiday break and regularly throughout the year.
Thank you.
