Fees for Bus Transportation

***Prices subject to change due to increase in gas charges.***

Transportation fees are billed per semester. Bus Transportation options and their associated costs are:

  • Round Trip:  $1,150 per semester ($250 per month, if paid monthly)

As a cost savings to parents, we continue to offer a reduction in the fare if the semester is paid in advance.

The amount of a one-way fare when paid at the beginning of each semester is $675.00; a yearly savings of $200.00 when compared to monthly payments.
