    Things to consider are how much travel time it takes from your residence to your student's selected school, cost of public transportation and your family's commute pattern.  The Antioch School District does not provide transportation to or from school. It is each family's responsibility to ensure their students arrive at school on time and can get home each afternoon. 

    Please note that driving times across Antioch may be as long as 30 minutes at school start and end times and that public transportaton may take more than an hour each way at a cost of as much as $4.00 each day.

    Each high school offers students a comprehensive program of study preparing them for College, Career, and Life. Among the required courses for graduation are many of those needed for admission to college. In addition, each high school offers a number of “Linked Learning Academies” which provide students the opportunity to focus their learning around a career theme linked to training and jobs in our area. As your family prepares for the move from middle school to high school, we encourage you to discuss future career interests and education with your student. Your family is best equipped to decided which “Linked Learning Academy” theme best fits your student’s interests, educational plans, and career goals, as well as daily logistics for ensuring they are able to fully access the programs and services offered.
