2012 – 2013 ACES Xavier Scrip Program
WHAT IS SCRIP
Scrip is a gift card resale program in which St. Francis Xavier Catholic School families & friends can participate. The gift cards are worth exactly what you pay for them, and generate revenue. When you take advantage of Scrip, you earn money just by making your regular household purchases. Instead of paying with cash or credit, you use prepaid gift cards
REVENUE AND CREDITING
St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System purchases gift cards at a discounted rate from participating vendors. The percentage of discount varies by vendor, indicated on the order form.
Because St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System purchases Scrip at a discounted amount but sells it at its full value, every dollar of Scrip that you purchase generates revenue and is split 65/35.
65% of the revenue is posted as a payment on your account to offset tuition and other fees. There is no cap on this amount.
The remaining 35% of the revenue is used first for costs associated with the Scrip program (staff, shipping, etc.) and then provides general operational support to St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System.
Purchases made between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013 are applied to tuition and fees for the 2012-2013 school year. Purchases after March 31, 2013 will be applied to the 2013-2014 school year and will not appear on your statement until billing for that period begins. If the account has a credit balance at the end of the 2012-2013 school year, the balance will be carried over to the 2012-2013 school year if there is a registered student in the family. If there are no students enrolled from the family for the 2013-2014 school year, Scrip credits earned after March 31, 2013 are applied 100% to support ACES Xavier educational programs.
