Get Your Tuition Raffle Tickets!

The Catholic Academy of Stamford is very excited to launch our inaugural Tuition Raffle for the 2018-2019 school year.  This is your chance to not only make a donation and support our school, but also be in the running to win a $10,000 tuition prize.

 The $10,000 prize for winning the raffle can be used for tuition at any accredited K-12 school, college or university located in the U.S.  The prize will be paid directly to the educational institution of the winner’s choice.   So in other words, you don't have to have a student at The Catholic Academy of Stamford or Trinity Catholic High School in order to participate in the raffle.
