We do not want distance to be a deterrent from attending St. John Bosco High School which is why we have several options available to Bosco families.
Carpool to School Program
CarpooltoSchool is a free secure online service that matches you to other parents who want to create a carpool, walkpool or bikepool. It is intuitive and easy to use. You can easily set up your profile, include the number of seats you have, as well as, get matched based on your children’s grade.

- Pick-Up/Departure: Students should be ready to board at the specified “pick-up” time. The latest time that the driver will wait is indicated on the schedule as “departure time.” No additional stops are permitted once the bus leaves the specified location. The bus will not stop along the route to accept tardy students or to make any other stops. Students will only be allowed to board at the designated pick-up locations.

If for some reason the bus is running late, the driver will notify the main office by phone and students will receive excused admit slips.
