Academy students live in Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont, and all of them commute to campus every day. Most students arrive on one of several buses that serve as “trunk lines” into their home communities: daily round-trip bus service is available from the Amherst/Northampton area, Greenfield, Shelburne Falls, and some Hilltowns of western Franklin County.
The Academy views buses as the ecologically responsible way for our students to get to campus, and as an additional opportunity to wind down with friends and practice good citizenship. We work hard to keep bus pass prices as low as possible.
The Academy’s three bus routes currently serve families in and around the following communities:
- School Bus #1: Northampton – Florence – Williamsburg – Goshen
- School Bus #2: Amherst/Hadley – Sunderland – Deerfield – Conway
- FRTA: Greenfield – Shelburne Falls – This is a public bus route with additional connections to other towns.
