The Servite High School English Department strives to foster and promote students' critical thinking skills, literary appreciation, and ethical development in a way that excites each student. Servite's English department plays a vital role in forming faith-filled leaders who are eager to learn from great classics of Western Literature. Our English teachers employ a variety of learning strategies to ensure that their instruction meets the needs of all learners.
Class time is used to emphasize perceptive reading and dynamic writing by studying some of the most seasoned voices in literary history. Students will dive into masterpieces such as Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Homer’s The Iliad, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Students hone their comprehension, writing, and editing skills by analyzing these texts through the lens of Servite’s formation themes and Marian devotion.
