Transportation to MPA
Mounds Park Academy families hail from 64 different zip codes throughout the greater Twin Cities region. Many families find the commute convenient on their way to and from the cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Other families collaborate and carpool on a regular or semi-regular basis from a variety of suburbs including Lino Lakes, Apple Valley, and Roseville.
In addition, MPA offers extensive bus services that parents with students of all ages take advantage of. Four MPA bus routes are being offered for the 2020-21 school year under a group stop model. They serve the following metropolitan areas: South Minneapolis, Woodbury, Falcon Heights, Ham Lake, Lino Lakes, Little Canada, North Oaks, Roseville, Shoreview, St. Paul, Vadnais Heights, and White Bear Lake. MPA provides extra care, especially for younger students, 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.
District 622 Buses
MPA students who live within the boundaries of Independent School District 622 (North St. Paul/Maplewood/Oakdale) are eligible for free bus service to MPA. These routes are planned by District 622. During the 2020-21 school year, this service is limited to Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings only.
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.
