Each year, HFM BOCES offers a Regional Summer School program for high school students in participating area school districts.

The program offers students the opportunity for Credit Recovery (full-year courses previously taken and failed) and to earn Advanced Credit (Economics, Participation in Government and Health).

Students will be contacted by their home school counselor if they need to attend Virtual Regional Summer School. If students of families have questions about this year’s Regional Summer School, they should contact their home school district.
