Please be aware that after all registration forms are received and/or after reviewing routes throughout the summer months, changes may be made to provide you with the best possible service. If changes are made you will receive notification from the school prior to opening.
If you choose to sign up for our private transportation, it is for the entire year. We are offering two types of services on these routes: the first is a round-trip service (morning and afternoon) for a fee of $2,600, or a one-way service for a fee of $1,800. The Roxborough/Andorra cost is $1,700 round-trip or $1,100 one-way. This one-way service is available in the morning OR afternoon and you will have to commit to either the morning or the afternoon routes.
