DSCN1245St. Mary’s Academy has three major fundraisers a year that go directly to enhance our social and academic programs here at the school. These are a fun way to get involved and meet other families while supporting your school.

ACE: March 30, 2019
Our 15th Annual ACE “Greatest School On Earth” Gala is scheduled for March 30, 2019 at Storrowton Tavern. Join us for this “Greatest Showman” themed event complete with circus performers, dinner and dessert stations, DJ and dancing and of course, our famous live and silent auctions. For more information on how to get involved next year, please contact Jenna Banaitis at or 413.567.0907.

ADVENT CALENDAR RAFFLE: September – December
Our Advent Calendar Raffle gears up every September as we solicit local businesses to sponsor our cash giveaways throughout December. This is a great way for companies to support Catholic education and market their business to a targeted local audience. Sponsorships range from $75 – $600 making it very reasonable for all budget levels. Our families are then asked to sell calendars to friends and family giving them a chance to win CASH prizes throughout the month of December. Please contact Jenna Banaitis at 413.567.0907 or for sponsorship information. Thanks to our sponsors below, and our many families who sold the Advent Calendars, we raised over $20,000 last Fall!!

Parent’s Association Magazine Drive
Each September, our PA, holds their Annual Magazine Drive which supports ALL of the wonderful activities offered to your students. This fundraiser is so much fun for the students as they win “turn in day prizes”, ice cream socials and a limo ride bowling lunch if they sell enough magazines!
