The SCRIP program raises funds for the school through the sale of gift cards for local merchants. A percentage of each card purchased is given to the school and the profit generated is credited to the purchasing family’s SCRIP account. A record is kept of the amount of SCRIP purchased by each family and the amount of profit that is generated by each purchase. Each family (not individual student) is required to generate $200 in profits from the SCRIP program through purchases of SCRIP OR pay an additional $200 in tuition. If a family decides to pay the additional tuition, the additional tuition will be deducted from the family’s account in May of the current school year. Please note – the dollar amount of scrip purchased does not equal profits generated. Profits generated are the discount each merchant donates to the school SCRIP Family Profit Summary. These balances are updated at the beginning of each month from August through June. If the balance of the SCRIP Program account is less than $200 when the SCRIP Program ends on April 30, the difference must be paid immediately. When a family exceeds the $200 from their SCRIP purchases, they begin earning a tuition credit, which is applied to their tuition, in December and May.
