Yellow School Bus


Advantage Charter Academy now offers bus transportation to eligible students through DS Bus South. To apply for busing, please log in to the Parent Portal and fill out the bus application in the forms section.

Parents are expected to provide the means for their children to get to and from school if busing is not available.

Students at crosswalk


Free busing is offered to eligible Advantage students. Eligibility is based on a state of Louisiana requirement that families live within the East Baton Rouge parish boundaries.

If you are in need of busing you should apply immediately. Bus applications are available to submit online via the Parent Portal, or you can print an application and bring it to the front office.

Families interested in receiving bus service text alerts sent to their phone can sign up here.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Every school day begins and ends in our parking lot.

Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:

  • Drive slowly and be aware — precious children are everywhere.
  • Drop children off between 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
  • Enter from the Plank Rd. entrance only.
  • Be patient with fellow drivers.
  • Stay off your cell phone.
