Saint Viator High School in Arlington Heights has announced a new partnership with CarpooltoSchool, an online service that allows families to build carpools for students. School families can create an online account at and then use the service to find a match with other families also looking to share a carpool.

"CarpooltoSchool provides another advantage to families that are considering Saint Viator now and in the future," said Patrick Gaeger, assistant director of Enrollment at the Arlington Heights school. "We have a number of students who come from a considerable distance and we feel that this can eliminate some of the obstacles that families encounter, especially when they have younger children still in elementary or middle school closer to their home."


Saint Viator chose to partner with CarpooltoSchool to not only ease family schedules but provide financial benefits by reducing expenses for gas and wear and tear.

"We are proud to be welcoming our students back to campus this fall and hope that CarpooltoSchool makes the return even easier for our families" said Gaeger. "We want families to know that we are thinking about them and doing everything we can to make it easier and more convenient for them by removing the stress of transportation"

The service is now available to all Saint Viator families and participation can begin at any time during the school year.

Saint Viator High School is a Catholic, college-preparatory school committed to providing religious formation and an academic program of excellence to young men and women.
