Scrip Program

Families may also choose to participate in the St. Mary’s scrip program where they can earn dollars for tuition by using gift cards (purchased online or through St. Mary’s Rectory).   One-half of the proceeds earned in your child’s name will be deducted from their tuition.   Use the gift cards instead of cash when you shop for groceries, clothes, dining out, etc. Extended family members and friends may also order and use RSM Scrip for the benefit of a specific student.  Click here for more on Scrip.


Home Parish Tuition Programs

A family’s home parish may also have a program for the school tuition needs of their parishioners.  Check with your parish pastor.   For more information contact Norine at 712-786-1324.
