My Dashboard - Operations and Policies


To avoid traffic congestion before and after school, we encourage Academy families to use public-school-district buses.  Districts are required to provide students with transportation to school within 10 road miles of their nearest borders.  Eleven school districts provide transportation to and from the Academy for students residing within their districts: Central Dauphin, Steelton-Highspire, Cumberland Valley, Middletown, Susquehanna Township, East Pennsboro, Mechanicsburg, Susquenita, Harrisburg City, Northern York, and West Shore.  Camp Hill does not offer transportation.


Each student who wishes to ride a public-school-district bus must have a completed Public School Bus Transportation eForm on file in the Academy’s Business Office (click here for more information on the public bus transportation services). Please do not send this form to a public school district directly.  Upon receipt of your request for transportation, the Academy will register your child with the school district.  It is important to submit transportation forms to the Academy as soon as possible, because some districts take longer than others to process requests.


The Academy asks public school districts to deliver students to school by 7:50 a.m. and to pick up by 3:25 p.m.  Generally, these districts do not offer transportation to 3- or 4-year-old students.


School districts inform parents of pick-up and drop-off points and times in different ways; some mail the information home and some post information to their website.  The districts are responsible for student safety and discipline while students are on their buses.  Please direct your questions directly to the appropriate school district transportation office.


For Carlisle area students, the Academy is pleased to offer its own transportation for an additional fee.  The pick-up point for the Carlisle route is the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (5 North Orange Street, Suite 3).  Seats are purchased for a one-year period (school days only) and are available for a one-way, to-school route each school day.  To reserve your student’s space on this Academy-operated bus, please contact the Business Office.
