Get Ready for the Carlisle Auction

Carlisle’s Auction is February 22-27th!

Join the Tradition

Hosted annually for the past 51 years, the auction is one of Carlisle School’s oldest traditions and also our biggest fundraiser event. Since we cannot gather in person this year we are going to keep the tradition alive through a virtual, online event!

Carlisle is a non-profit, 501(c)3 independent school and does not receive any state funding. Every dollar raised at this event helps Carlisle provide a challenging curriculum in a nurturing learning environment where children will grow academically and socially.

Thank You to Our Title Sponsors


How to Participate

Step 1: Order Your Bidding Pass and help us move towards our fundraising target (shown on the main page of the auction website).

If you do not wish to bid in the auction but still want to see that thermometer expand, you can make a donation on the main page of the auction website. You can also purchase Auction Bucks to give as gifts or become a sponsor.

Step 2: Browse the item catalog. Click on items and use the star icon to mark your favorites. Clicking the star will help you find favorite items easier during the event. Do check back often as new items are added daily!

Step 3: Bidding opens at 8:00 am on Monday, February 22nd. That evening at 6:30 pm we’ll broadcast an auction preview show, hosted by Carlisle Alums Ainsley Johnston ‘05 and Pres Garrett ‘04 who will share about the many exciting items available.

You can continue bidding on silent auction items throughout the week until 6:59 pm on Saturday, February 27th.

Step 4: Tune in and watch. At 6:30 pm on February 27th our alumni hosts will return again with an update on our fundraising totals so far and also give an advance peek at some of the live auction items that will be offered later in the evening.

Stay tuned for the main event at 7:00 pm when Dean Johnston and Phil Garrett co-host our main auction broadcast. During this show, ten special items will be auctioned live on the air! It will be a fun event, appropriate for the whole family, and you don’t want to miss it!

Every dollar raised will support the programs at Carlisle which help students learn to lead, excel, and succeed. Please join us!
