Scrip

There are a dizzying array of scrip programs in which St. Monica Academy participates.  There is bound to be at least one that meets your needs for convenience.

Traditional Scrip

Vendors sell scrip (often in the form of gift certificates or gift cards) at a discount to the school.  For example, they may sell a $25 gift card to Bath and Body Works for $20.  The school earns $5 on the sale of the gift card.

St. Monica Academy purchases scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center, a clearinghouse which sells scrip for hundreds of vendors.  An order form for the most frequently ordered scrip is HERE. (When you click on this link, the form goes to your browser’s downloads folder.) This is an Excel spreadsheet and will fill in the totals automatically.

To see a full list of Great Lakes Scrip Center vendors, and the earnings on scrip purchases, go to the Great Lakes Scrip Center website and click on either the “alphabetically” or “by category” links under “Retailer List.”  Or you can download an alphabetical list (not guaranteed to be current) by clicking here.

Participating in traditional scrip involves a little advance planning, as it takes about two weeks to receive scrip after placing an order. A volunteer parent takes scrip orders every Monday after school. Call the office at (818) 369-7310 for more information on purchasing traditional scrip.
