Transportation

School bus or city bus ransportation is provided to some students at St. Patrick Academy depending on where they reside:
 
Providence Residents ~ Students who reside in Providence must live two miles from the school to qualify for a free monthly RIPTA bus pass. The distance is determined by the Providence School Department. Each year, families must apply for this transportation (application forms are available at St. Patrick Academy and we will assist you with this process). Students who qualify are given a free RIPTA bus pass that is good for school days only.
 
Students who might have a medical need that requires transportation and do not live outside the 3 mile radius may contact the Providence School Department’s Transportation Office for a waiver, but their request must be documented by a doctor’s letter explaining the physical need.
