Varsity & Scholars

100 BOOK CHALLENGE® VARSITY and SCHOLARS are designed exclusively for middle and high school students who are reading below grade level. Books are selected to engage students with topics that are compelling to older readers at their independent reading level.

  • Increase students’ experience with informational text and literature.
  • Widen and deepen reading skills, strategies, and academic vocabulary.
  • Provide ladders of learning that accelerate the acquisition of grade level reading ability.

What’s the Difference?

VARSITY has been designed exclusively for students in middle school. Books are selected to make the collection look mature, while also avoiding content too mature for preteen readers.

SCHOLARS has been designed exclusively for teenagers. Books in this module feature topics that are particularly compelling to high school readers, from sports to romance, peer pressure to fast cars. Scholars is intended for students in Grades 9-12 and is not appropriate for children under 13. Language is not restricted.

100,000+ Titles From 250 Publishers
