Since 2008, Confluence Charter Schools has worked with First Student to provide school bus service. Every day, nearly 2,800 Confluence students ride a bus to and from school. As a benefit to our students and families, we provide school bus service to Confluence Academy-Old North, Confluence Academy-South City, Aspire Academy, Confluence Preparatory Academy and Elite Academy at CPA. Every student is assigned a bus route, even if they live close enough to walk to school. Currently, school bus transportation is not provided at Grand Center Arts Academy.
First Student is the largest student transportation service company in the St. Louis area. First Student contracts with several school districts, including Saint Louis Public Schools. Confluence chose First Student as its transportation partner because of their commitment to customers, their dedication to safety and their high standards for efficient routes and transportation. First Student hires and trains all their drivers before putting them on the road to run a route with students. Not only does First Student take our students to and from school each day, they also provide bus service for field trips, after-school activities, athletics and more.
