Why is the Raffle important?

Tuition does not cover the cost of educating a St. Pius X student, the Raffle helps close the tuition gap per student. Some specifics include:

  • Keeping tuition low for all SPX families
  • Providing financial aid to qualified students and families
  • Fostering the best faculty through competitive salaries
  • Maintaining our 25+ acres of grounds and buildings
  • Supporting and upgrading our technology

How do I purchase Raffle tickets and how much do they cost?

  • Raffle tickets can be purchased from any SPX student, faculty or staff member or online via the form above
  • Cost: $20 for a book of 3 tickets.
