The Accelerated Reader program puts students in the driver’s seat. Students select books to read, while engaging quizzes and activities help hone students’ reading skills with authentic practice—encouraging growth.
Many of your child's favorite books are AR books. Click here to visit the Renaissance Accelerated Reader login page.
Battle of the Books
The Battle of the Books combines students' love of literature with the thrill of competition. Students who join the program read books selected by a committee and engage in a variety of activities to enhance their understanding and appreciation of the books.
In the spring, each team battles for a chance to represent St. Andrew's Elementary School and battle another school in the diocese. Teams are asked questions about the books they have read and awarded points for their answers. The highest-scoring team wins.
