Virginia Bus Routes and Metro Shuttles

The school offers three daily bus routes to and from various destinations in Northern Virginia as well as daily shuttle service between the school and the Grosvenor-Strathmore station on Metro’s Red Line. The 2018 – 2019 lists of stops and bus schedules appear below.  To better accommodate our families’ transportation needs we have added one new stop.

You may register for this bus service when submitting your online enrollment contract or via direct contact with the Business Office. Seating is limited and early sign up is strongly encouraged. Both one-way and two-way ridership is offered, on an annual basis only.

The 2018-19 fees are as follows:

  • Virginia — two way – $1,850
  • Virginia — one way – $1,050
  • Shuttle — two way – $575
  • Shuttle — one way – $310

Please plan to arrive at the bus stops 5-10 minutes early to account for variability in traffic. Times indicated below are “pull-away” times.  

In the event of inclement weather buses follow the school’s schedule which in turn follows the schedule for Montgomery County Public Schools. In the event of scheduled half days of school, buses depart the school campus ten minutes after dismissal.
