Accelerated Reading

Accelerated Reading (AR) is the most popular reading software in schools. Since 1986 AR has helped hundreds of thousands of teachers inspire reading with their students.

After students read a book, they take a computerized quiz which rates their reading comprehension. If students test well on the quiz, AR points are given. Earning points motivates many children to continue reading. Awards are given to children throughout the school year as they achieve goals.

Because of Accelerated Reading, St. Mary’s Students have proudly proven their tremendous reading abilities. Teachers see growth in the area of reading at our school, and AR is a great contributor to this.
