  • Gilmour Shuttle Service

    We may offer a limited number of transportation services to our students based upon need, location and sufficient demand.* Parents are responsible for coordinating transportation for their child.
    Fees for this service are based on the miles between the student’s pick-up/drop-off point and Gilmour Academy. Pick-up/drop-off points may be either a residence or a group stop based upon the routes determined by the Transportation Department.
    Transportation fees will be billed in early September, either in full or added to a monthly payment plan.
    Parents can request transportation when they complete school forms online in the spring.
