School District Busing (Non-Philadelphia Districts)

We draw students from many surrounding school districts.  Please contact your individual school district to determine if free busing or public transportation is available to your student.  The majority of students attending West Catholic Prep are eligible for free bus service or public transportation provided by their local school district. Some school districts that offer our current students transportation options include the following:

Cheltenham, Chester, Chichester, Haverford, Interboro, Marple-Newtown, Norristown, Penn-Delco, William Penn, Philadelphia, Ridley Park, Southeast Delco, Springfield Township, Springfield School District, Upper Darby, Wallingford-Swarthmore

Free Public Transportation (Philadelphia School District Busing Policy)

Free Weekly SEPTA transpasses are provided to students living within the city limits and 1.5 miles or more away from West Catholic Prep. Students can use these SEPTA transpasses on the elevated train, subway, and all trollies and buses. *West Catholic Prep is located 2 blocks from the 46th and Market stop of the El.


West Catholic Prep has ample parking facilities to accommodate those students who drive to school.
