Saint Francis of Assisi School

Where faith and education merge with excellence

Saint Francis of Assisi school was opened in 1929. We presently occupy three buildings, with the Pre-School classes held in the building adjacent to Conway Hall. The stone school building contains classrooms for Kindergarten, Grades 1-3, main  office, computer lab, nurse's office, Delaware County Intermediate Unit  remediation and counseling room. The brick building presently contains classrooms for Grades 4-8, principal's office, faculty room, Honors math classroom and contains a combination auditorium/gymnasium. St. Francis of Assisi School has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1984.

Scrip is the Parish based program where you purchase gift cards to your favorite stores through SFA and get a percent of that purchase amount back as a tuition credit or rebate check. The scrip program is open to all registered members of St. Francis of Assisi parish.  The goal is to assist parish members in meeting ever-increasing financial demands and to support the parish.  If you have a child in the SFA child care, elementary school, Religious Education program or a preschool, high school or college where you are required to pay tuition, the credits can be redeemed to help with those expenses.  It is a program that over the course of your child's education can save you a significant amount on tuition and help the parish at the same time. 

What is the SFA Scrip program?

Scrip is the Parish based program where you purchase gift cards to your favorite stores through SFA and receive a cash back reward. Your cash back reward can be redeemed in various ways including: applying credits toward school tuition or PREP (yours or another family), donated to the parish, or receiving a rebate check from the parish.  The purpose of the program is to help SFA families and friends earn money for the parish while also earning cash back on everyday purchases. 

Who can participate?

Anyone can participate! Simply purchase physical or ELECTRONIC gift cards for participating retailers. These retailers have agreed to contribute a percentage of the gift card sale proceeds back to SFA, which the parish shares with YOU, split 25/75! For example, Giant Food Stores offers a 4% discount on their gift cards. That means 3% of your $100 purchase goes into your Scrip account and 1% goes to the Parish.

What stores have gift cards available?

We have a large selection of gift cards available to purchase each week in addition to a large number of stores that can be ordered for you. For a complete list of participating retailers, please visit Once there, you can also sign up for Presto Pay and have electronic gift cards delivered right to your email to use right away!

Saving money using the Scrip program is easy! Earning money for yourself and the parish is well worth it. Purchase your gift cards for groceries (Giant, Acme, Shoprite, Swiss Farms, Colonial Village), gas (Wawa, 76 gas), birthday gifts (Target, Marshalls, Bath & Body Works), lunch/dinner with family and friends (Smashburger, Burger King, Panera Bread, Olive Garden, Outback) as well as countless other opportunities. You can even pay your Kohl’s bill using Scrip cards!

When will I receive my rebate/tuition credit?

Tuition credits amounts will be distributed quarterly via the email you place on file when you sign up. In order to redeem your credit, please email Bernadette DePaul in the tuition office no later than one week prior to your tuition due date and she will deduct it from your next payment. This process has been changed to work with the new tuition program FACTS.

If you choose to receive a rebate check, checks are distributed twice a year in January and July. Your checks can be mailed to you or you can pick them up at the rectory once they are available.
