There are several options for transportation to and from Lake Catholic in the morning, afternoon and early evening.

Lake Catholic Van/Bus Transportation

In most areas where public school district transportation is not available, Lake Catholic provides transportation between centralized stops in Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga counties and Lake Catholic High School.  Please note that this service is not intended to be door-to-door transportation.  The cost varies depending on the service needed.  Routes, times, and pick-up locations are determined according to need and are finalized in early August each year.  Transportation is provided on a first come, first served basis with priority given to full-year riders.  While you may change your future level of service, refunds are not granted for past unused service.  Your fee reserves a seat for your student for the service you request and is not available to others when your student does not ride.  For more information on transportation provided by Lake Catholic vehicles,  please contact Greg Anthony at
