Area students offered Summer School and Kids Summer Learning Program



With the return to the physical classroom, students from the Fall River area are being offered Somerset Summer School and the Somerset Kids Summer Learning Program.

According to Principal William Aguiar, the Somerset Summer School will be offering students who failed one or two classes over the course of the school year, to retake their classes in-person at Somerset Berkley Regional High School.

“We realize that online/hybrid learning was difficult for many students and at this point some students are frustrated and have given up. We want to encourage our students to keep trying, not to give up, and let us help you. We want you to do better in your schoolwork and to enjoy it more!”

The Summer School Sessions begins July 1 and runs through August 6. The first class runs 7:30 a.m. through 9:10 a.m. and the second class runs 9:20 a.m. through 11:15 a.m. For registration information, email or
