What is Scrip?
Scrip is a gift card program. St. John XXIII Catholic School purchases gift cards at a discount which we then sell for face value. The difference is profit for St. John XXIII Catholic School. This program is designed for all families and will not cost you any more money than you are already spending. We are simply asking you to do your shopping “through” us.
Scrip Buyers can earn a Tuition Rebate!
Beginning July 1, 2021 Tuition Rebates earned will now be split 50/50 between a currently enrolled St. John XXIII family and St. John XXIII Catholic School.
In addition to raising funds that are used to benefit your children’s education; school families have the opportunity to receive a tuition rebate at the end of the Scrip year. The Scrip Rebate Year runs from Feb. 1 through Jan. 31. Beginning July 1, 2021 the profits will be split: 50% will go to the school and 50% will go towards your tuition rebate.
For example, if you purchase a $100 Safeway card, our rebate is 4% or $4. The $4 would be split 50/50, $2 towards tuition and $2 to the school.
Rebates are calculated and applied once a year at the end of the Scrip year, Jan. 31. You will be notified if you have earned a tuition rebate in March and any rebate received will be applied to your FACTS tuition account in April. Rebates can only be applied to tuition for an enrolled student at St. John XXIII Catholic School.
