Transportation Information for SWCTA

Dear Prospective Student/Parent

We are pleased that you want to be a part of our school. We would like to remind you that according to the address you provide on your application you may or may not fall within our transportation zone.

The CCSD/Magnet Department has split up the transportation boundaries between SWCTA and WCTA. These two schools no longer share transportation. It is important that you keep that in mind when applying to either schools.

If you live outside of our transportation and you are selected through the lottery, you will be responsible for providing your own transportation for the full year. CCSD does not allow withdrawal from any magnet school mid-year so please keep that in mind when applying to a school outside of your transportation boundaries and accepting a seat.

Please, take this opportunity to view the CCSD transportation link below to verify transportation eligibility and bus routes. You will be able to see which CTA is within your transportation using the drop down arrow  and selecting CTA. Click on link below.

It is very important that you verify transportation before accepting a seat. Please refer to maps below for detailed information.
