Busing Information

Kenosha Busing Information

Kenosha busing is free to those Middle and Upper School students who qualify.  Students who live over 2 miles from St. Joseph Catholic Academy and within the Kenosha Unified School District are eligible for busing.  (Other district regulations may also apply.)

  • Please click here for the SJCA Kenosha Bus Form.  You may also call the Upper Campus Main Office, at (262) 654-8651, to request a form.
  • All forms and requests must  be delivered to the Upper Campus Main office prior to July 12th.   After this date, please contact the Main Office as soon as possible. Please do not call the busing company.
  • All busing requests are sent to Kenosha Unified in July for the determination of eligibility, bus stops, and the various routes and times. 
  • Parents/guardians are notified in August, before school begins, as to the route and times for their student.
  • If your student does not qualify for the school bus, some students will be granted a “city bus pass” to ride the city bus, also free of charge.  Information is available through the City Transit Office regarding times and stops that the city bus makes.
  • Currently there is no busing to the Lower Campus; however, SJCA is exploring the possible options for the 2020-2021 school year.

Illinois Busing 

Busing is currently available to students for an annual fee of $1,000. Due to Illinois state law, busing students over state lines has some limitations. When a Wisconsin school bus crosses over the state line to pick up students, it is limited to the parking lot of businesses, churches, and schools. The buses will NOT be able to stop at private residences, private driveways, or along roadsides. If you are interested in busing from Illinois:

  • We are currently working with a new bus provider.  Please contact Mrs. Bishop in the Business Office for more information at (262) 654-8651 ext. 111.
  • Parents/guardians are notified in August, before school begins, as to the route and times for their student

For questions, please contact Mrs. Charlotte Bishop at (262) 654-8651 ext. 111 or cbishop@sjcawi.org
