Saint Anselm SCRIP Program



What is SCRIP?

Participation in the SCRIP Program helps families pay tuition for Catholic education.  This includes Grade Schools, High Schools and Colleges.

Gift cards are purchased in the SCRIP Office or SCRIP may also be purchased online.  A percentage of the purchase is credited toward the school of your choice.  For those who do not have a child in Catholic School, the credit would then go to St. Anselm Parish or you may direct it to another family.

Example: Purchase food gift cards
$100.00 X 52 weeks = $5,200.00 x 4% tuition reimbursement = $208.00 per year.

All SCRIP buyers must provide registration information.  Forms are available in the SCRIP office or via contacting Mary Ann Thackrah at  Please also contact Mary Ann for more information or questions regarding SCRIP.
