Pope St. John XXIII STEM Academy has been a vital part of South Tacoma’s community for the past 94 years.  The diverse student body at PSJXXIII will become our future scholars, engineers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, teachers, and leaders of tomorrow.  We are asking for your support in order to provide expert teaching, excellence in learning, and enriching faith formation.  The funds from our annual auction allow us to offer generous tuition assistance and strengthen our academic programs.

Thanks to you, our 2022 auction raised over $96,000!  That’s $6,000 more than our goal of $90,000 in March 2022! 

Mark your calendars for Saturday March 25, 2023 to join us in-person at Pope St. John XXIII STEM Academy’s Night of Pure Imagination Annual Auction at the McGavick Conference Center! Be prepared for a Silent online auction the week before. We invite you to attend the event at McGavick where we will have games, items for silent bidding and our ever popular live items!

The annual auction is our biggest fundraising event of the year, helping to offset tuition costs. This year we are excited to celebrate our new parish and name, Pope St. John XXIII STEM Academy.  We are grateful for you, our friends and supporters, who make this event and our community special. 

The families of Pope St. John XIII are busy preparing for this event; they have a contractual obligation to donate an item or items that raise at least $200. Not sure what to donate? Please contact the Auction Committee for ideas at
