Scrip is an opportunity to reduce the amount of monthly tuition you pay for one or several children. Each week families place an order at the school for any gift certificate available. Based on the percentage of the certificate purchased, families receive a percentage back, towards tuition. Funding is generated from customers using gift certificates rather than cash to purchase products and services at stores that participate in Scrip. Our participating merchants are selected from the largest regional and/or national grocery chains, drug stores, department stores, warehouse stores, restaurants, gas stations and miscellaneous retailers in the country and even our area. Proceeds are divided equally between the school and the family. You can download the Scrip form by visiting this link.
