Forget magazine drives and candy sales. A cash-strapped high school near Philadelphia hopes to raise money by auctioning itself on eBay.

Officials at The Learning Center in Langhorne, Pa., are seeking bids starting around $600,000 to offset steep budget cuts.

The eBay listing describes the public alternative school for at-risk teens as "pre-owned" and "slightly used."

The winner won't own the school. But he or she will get a naming opportunity, a free large pizza and the satisfaction of "delivering an education to a group of kids who could really use it."

Principal JoAnn Holland says she hopes the auction idea, which came from a recent graduate, will draw the attention of a wealthy benefactor. Bidding ends Wednesday.

Neshaminy School District officials did not immediately return requests for comment Monday.
