Refer a Family!

Do you know a family who you’d love to see Come Join Our Family?! Did you know that we reward you for introducing new families to St. John? Recommendations and referrals from our families are our best source of meeting new families who value Christian education at St. John like we do.

Here's how it works: For every family you refer who tours St. John, we thank you with a $100 credit to use towards tuition or ESS. If they enroll and once they spend a trimester with us, we’ll award you another $400!

If you have any questions, please just let Jon Woldt ( or Peter Kolch ( know.

There's an app for that!

1. Shoparoo ~ Download the app

a. Shop at any store for any product, take a picture of your receipt, and the points you receive become money that Shoparoo donates to St. John.

b. There is no limit to how much we can raise. The more supporters

we have the more we'll earn. A school with roughly 50 active participants raises about $1000 each year through Shoparoo!

c. To use Shoparoo

i. Download the Shoparoo app on your smartphone.

ii. Create an account with your email and a password.

iii. Search for St. John (by state, city, and then school).

iv. When you login enter the code STRID187 under the profile section.

Each September, Shoparoo sends the PTP a check for the amount we've earned.

BoxTops is changing!

As long as you are scanning receipts, don't forget to download the new Boxtops app, add St. John, Libertyville as your school, and scan your receipts! Boxtops is slowly phasing out the Boxtops Clips to make things easier on all of us! All we will need to do is scan our receipt!

Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school.

Eventually, the Box Tops program will become digital-only. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label.
