In 2005, MySchoolBucks got its start with a simple plan: to make school payments convenient and easy. We're parents too, and we understand how challenging it can be to keep up with the busy activities of daily life, from school to music lessons or soccer practice, to homework and getting dinner on the table. We're committed to shortening your "to do" list so that there's one less thing to worry about, whether it's finding time to pack tomorrow's lunches or remembering to write a check for the upcoming field trip.
Today, more than 2 million families with kids at 25,000 schools across the US trust MySchoolBucks with their payments for school meals, after-school programs, bus passes, athletic fees and more. With MySchoolBucks, you can add money to your child's account, view account balances and recent purchases, and set up notifications for upcoming payments - from the convenience of your home, office, or on-the-go with our mobile app.
Additionally, we take your security seriously - in fact, it's our top priority. We understand the trust you place in us to keep your information safe, and MySchoolBucks adheres to the strictest security standards for online payments. As a service of Heartland School Solutions, a division of Heartland Payment Systems, Inc. (NYSE: HPY), we've got the support, security, resources and expertise of the nation's 5th largest payment processor, responsible for more than $80 billion in transactions annually.
