Mount Saint Mary Academy offers a variety of transportation options for students. Families submit a B6T Application for Private School Transportation form annually to the Academy, and the Academy in turn submits that to each municipality. Each year local school districts determine whether they will provide transportation to the out of district schools. Families are reimbursed approximately $900 per year if their resident school district does not provide service.
