Transportation
Carmel Catholic High School is proud to educate residents of four counties and two states, and operates a comprehensive transportation program for families who require pick-up and drop-off services. In addition, on and off-campus parking permits are available for student drivers, as well as opportunities to carpool with Carmel Catholic classmates. For more information, please review the dropdown menus below.
Carmel Catholic High School offers several bus routes, which operate daily and service our local communities. Pick-up and drop-off times are listed below, along with a map link (m) for each location. The round trip, year-long bus registration fee is $675.*
 
*Due to our hybrid education model, students will not require daily busing to campus to begin the 2020-21 school year. Accordingly, a percentage of the transportation fee will be refunded to families at the end of the first semester. In addition, should hybrid learning continue into the second semester, a similar refund procedure will be implemented.
