How do I get a Gold Card?

By downloading, completing and printing a Gold Card Application (PDF). Application form are also available from the District Office.


What does a Gold Card entitle me to?

A Gold Card entitles you to FREE admission to any school-sponsored event such as

  • choral and band concerts
  • plays
  • athletic events

You may enter these events simply by showing your card at the door.

  • A Gold Card also entitles you to attend some courses offered by Souderton Area Community Education Evening School at no cost (although there may be a charge for supplies, etc.) or at a discounted rate. Please check the brochure to see what classes are offered.

What if there are reserved seats?

If the event you would like to attend has seats reserved, you may obtain a ticket by contacting the school several weeks before the event. Even if you have not called for reserved seats, your Gold Card will be acceptable at the door. However, we cannot guarantee you a seat. Your Gold Card is good for general admission to athletic events but not for reserved seats.


Are there any events where my Gold Card cannot be used?

Yes, it cannot be used for events sponsored by school-connected organizations such as Home and School Associations, Fifth Quarter Club, Band Boosters, etc., where admission is charged unless these organizations make their own provisions for accepting Gold Cards. The Evening School office will not accept Gold Cards for trip reservations.


Can anyone else use my Gold Card?

No, the Gold Card is not transferable. It can be used only by you.


How will I know the schedule of school events?

School-sponsored activities are listed on the district web site in the District > Calendar > Districtwide Activities Calendar section, and often appear in the local newspapers.


What do I do if I lost my Gold Card?

If your card is lost, contact the Souderton Area School District, District Administrative Offices, 760 Lower Road, Souderton, PA 18964.
