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 Arete Prep and require a deposit that is fully refundable upon return of the textbooks in permissible condition.

It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Arete Prep 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.

** Families are not required to purchase depository books; these will be distributed to all students before school starts.
