Scrip is a nationally recognized fundraising program. The term scrip means “substitute money.” School families, parish families, staff members and the community are invited to purchase scrip in the form of gift certificates from national and local retailers that can be used just like cash.  Scrip can be used to purchase everyday items like groceries, clothing, gas and other essentials. With every purchase, businesses donate a certain percentage of the Scrip monies to STA. Order forms are available in the School Office or orders can be placed on the Scrip website. STA's enrollment code is: C53A77D411457
