Tuition Raffle Opens Monday

tuition raffle 2019

Head of School Dr. James Hickey and Assistant Head for Administration Sue Belanger draw the winning Tuition Raffle ticket at the 2019 Signature Event.


Like many, we were disappointed not to have had the Signature Event in 2020. But one of the highlights at the Signature Event, the annual Tuition Raffle drawing, will still take place! The Tuition Raffle, open to all current and newly enrolled parents, is your chance to be credited up to the full tuition cost for one student for the 2020-2021, or the 2021-2022 academic year.  Tuition raffle tickets will go on sale Monday, May 17th at 10:00 a.m. and end when the set amount of tickets are sold or on Friday, May 24th, whichever comes first.  You will receive an email Monday morning with a link to purchase tickets. The winning ticket will be drawn on Thursday, June 3rd and announced to the community via live webinar. Raffle tickets are $250 and only 250 will be sold. Check out the announcement from the 2018 Signature Event. This is a call from Dr. Hickey you will want to take! More details about the tuition raffle will be distributed next week. Good luck!

Despite not playing for nearly two full years (as a result of the cancellation of the Spring 2020 sports season), our Spring teams haven't missed a beat. Austin Prep Varsity Baseball, Softball, Boys Lacrosse, Girls Lacrosse, Boys Tennis, Girls Tennis and Track and Field Teams have accumulated a perfect 16-0 record through yesterday. This week, the Baseball Team received coverage in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald, and Girls Lacrosse's Kerri Finneran '25 was included as a Boston Globe Player of the Week. Keep it going!





Some of our graduating seniors are part of Austin Prep legacy families. Check out these pictures of Class of 2021 graduates and their parents who are Austin Prep Alums. We are excited to have welcomed the Class of 2021 to the ranks of Austin Prep Alumni, and congratulations to the Bartley, Noyes, Peterson, and Stone families!
