Administration and Central Office

Welcome to the Somerset Area School District!  
The Somerset area is a beautiful, rural region in the Laurel Highlands that supports a school system with some of the most outstanding young people one will ever meet.  The Somerset Golden Eagle student population is filled with top-notch scholars, talented musicians, outstanding performers, and skilled athletes.  Our students are kind, empathetic citizens that share a common bond--Golden Eagle pride!  We, too, are proud---proud of our students and the caring and dedicated faculty, staff, and administrators who work hard every day to ensure that each child learns in a safe, clean, and friendly environment and knows that he or she is an important part of our school family.
To the parents and guardians in the District, thank you for sharing your children with us and for working collaboratively to ensure a successful future for our students and our community.
To those visiting this website from outside the Somerset area, we invite you to come to Golden Eagle Country and see what Eagle Pride is all about!

Please do not hesitate to contact any of our administrators with any questions or concerns.
