Cafeteria and Store Payment Accounts

Villa Maria parents can now use a system called My Payments Plus (MPP) to put money in a payment account for students to use in the cafeteria. The accounts will also be used to pay for school store food purchases, school trips, and events.

  • There is NO fee to add money to an account electronically. All families are REQUIRED to set up an MPP account at the start of their daughter’s academic year.  Monies that remain at the end of the school year will be automatically rolled over for the next academic year.  Seniors who graduate with a balance will have the option to have a refund sent to the parent (if the balance is more than $10.oo) or automatically transferred to a sibling at the school.  Checks will not be issued under the $10.00 threshold.

All Villa parents are REQUIRED to create an account at www.MyPaymentsPlus.com. There is no fee to create an account.  You will need to link a bank account or credit card to move money onto the student’s account for Cafeteria and school purchases.  This works similar to E-Z Pass.  You may also set a notification for low balance and replenishment of funds.

All NEW families will be sent information about the MPP program in August of each academic year.  Families are encouraged to create their parent account and LINK their daughter(s) to that account using their daughter’s School ID number (5 digit).  This number can be found on their school ID card.

Use MyPaymentsPlus to:

  • Pay for meals, and (coming soon) fees and activities.
  • Manage and keep track of all student payments in one convenient location.
  • Monitor cafeteria purchase history and receive low balance alerts.
  • Browse registration deadlines, enroll your student in various school activities, and review any outstanding fees (coming soon).

How many funding sources can I add?
You may add more than one funding source.  For example, you can use a credit card for activity related purchases and a bank account or secondary credit card for the cafeteria.

What if I have more than one daughter?
You can add multiple daughters to your one parent account using their school ID.  You can even use one funding source and divide the funds between the girls.

What is the low balance threshold for notification?
All students with a $5.00 or less balance will receive an email reminder to replenish funds for continued use of the MPP program.  Parents may wish to set a higher threshold before accounts reach the $5.00 mark to avoid emails.
