Valley Christian Schools’ Department of Transportation has been offering safe, dependable, quality transportation to our families for well over 10 years. In 2009, we contracted with First Student, the largest provider of student transportation in North America, to improve and expand our busing program. We currently offer over 40 different routes that carry hundreds of our students to and from school Monday through Friday. Our expanded busing program eases commutes for our families and allows them to take advantage of the incredible programs at Valley Christian Schools no matter where they live in the South Bay. It is important to us that we offer quality busing at a reasonable price to all of our interested families. For $350 a year one-way, or $700 a year both ways (per child), we can assist you with your child’s transportation needs. For your convenience and security, we also provide an SMS program which supports real-time communication to provide parents and students immediate notification in the event of busing delays caused by road conditions, inclement weather, etc. For more information visit our website at vcs.net/transportation.
