In order to keep our tuition rates affordable, St. Monica Academy sponsors several types of fund-raisers throughout the year. Tuition income only covers about 50% of the operating expenses of the school.Thank you for your support that will make this beautiful, classical Catholic education possible and affordable for our many families. We are grateful for your sacrifice and will use every penny wisely. May God bless you for your generosity,
Please consider the following types of gifts and their tax advantages:
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.
To see a full list of Great Lakes Scrip Center Vendors, you may download a List of Companies that offer scrip 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. Contact the office for more information on purchasing traditional scrip.
