Parents with students of all ages take advantage of the bus services. Bus transportation is a safe and reliable way for students to get to school. MPA provides extra care especially for younger students who are escorted to the bus area by an administrator to ensure that every student boards the correct bus safely. In addition, bus drivers do not leave a bus stop until all children are picked up by parents in the afternoon.
Mounds Park Academy contracts for four bus routes currently. They serve the following metropolitan areas: Falcon Heights, Ham Lake, Lino Lakes, Little Canada, North Oaks, Roseville, Shoreview, St Paul, Vadnais Heights and White Bear Lake. These routes are planned by MPA and our contracting bus company. Students can ride either round-trip or one-way. The annual fee for this bus service can vary from year to year.
District 622 Buses
MPA students who live within the boundaries of Public School District #622 (North St.Paul/Maplewood/Oakdale) are eligible for free bus service to MPA. These routes are planned by District 622. If families living outside ISD #622 are willing to drive to an existing bus stop within the district, they can also ride these buses.
Transportation Reimbursement for Families
Many public school districts offer some travel reimbursement to families who live in their district but who are not attending local public schools. The amount and terms of the reimbursement vary from district to district. Each family should contact the local school district for further information about these reimbursements.
