Our Annual School Auction is cancelled due to COVID-19.



Annual Lion's Drive 300 X $500 Campaign!


Unfortunately, COVID-19 has led to the cancellation of the annual St. Mark Classical School auction for the 2021-2022 school year.  This event provides necessary funds to pay our teachers, help students facing hardship, and meet general operating expenses at our school.  Without these funds, our school would find itself in an extremely challenging situation.  We do have a plan to aid us with this situation.  


It’s simple – if 300 people donate $500 or more, we will meet our goal of achieving at least $150,000 for our school! Your donation is tax-deductible.  


Where does the money go?  Great question!  To supplement the $1,000,000 annual budget, the annual fund and auction together are budgeted for $150,000.  The money each year funds the general operating budget and covers staff and faculty salaries and benefits, operating costs for the building, textbooks, and materials for teaching.  

Your support is needed this year for the viability and continued growth of our school.  Please consider donating to the Annual Lion's Drive 300 X $500 Campaign!  And don’t forget to ask your employer about gift matching.  


Donations can be made through the following methods:


If you are unable to donate at this time, there are other ways to support us.  You can advocate for us by sharing our mission and mentioning St. Mark Catholic Classical School on your personal social media pages, or send a copy of this letter to family and friends.


We are proud of our community’s sense of unity and faithfulness to God.  It is in times like this that we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.  We thank you for being part of our community and supporting our mission of Catholic Classical education.  


With Gratitude,
