Transportation

As a convenience to parents, Falmouth Academy makes bus transportation available to off-Cape, mid-Cape, South Coast, and Vineyard students. The cost of transportation covers the full school year, round-trip and is a charge incurred by the family.  

Bus transportation aligns with the school program, leaving Falmouth Academy at 4:40 p.m. Monday through Thursday and at 2:45 p.m. on Friday.  These times enable students to use the library, computer room, to participate in sports or other after-school programs.

The bus schedule for the start of the 2018-2019 school year is below. The routes are determined by the needs of the students and may be modified as needed. 

Please note: Vineyard students should hold onto their commuter cards through the summer. They are good for the following year.
