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, 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.

MPA Buses
New for the 2019-20 school year, MPA will partner with Hill-Murray to provide four bus routes under a group stop model. The following routes have been established for the 2019-20 school year.

Route 1 - Highland/Saint Paul

Route 2 - North Oaks/Roseville

Route 3 - Stillwater/Lakeland

Route 4 - Woodbury

District 622 Buses
School District 622 residents are eligible for free bus service, as Mounds Park Academy is located within this district. MPA will coordinate with the district to schedule the morning and afternoon routes, or to add students during the year. Students who reside outside the boundaries of District 622 may be eligible to ride the district’s MPA buses. Parents are responsible to contact the district directly at 651-773-4592 to see what existing stops are available and if a service fee applies. If you elect this service, parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their student at the existing bus stops located within the district boundaries. The routes below are for 2018-19. Routes for 2019-20 will be sent in August 2019.
