TUITION REDUCTION INCENTIVE PLAN (TRIP)

Just a little planning ahead is all you need to do to reduce your tuition through your everyday shopping! TRIP is held every week in the rotunda at ACS!  Participation in TRIP is available to all parents considering Christian education or presently involved in Christian education. Over 700 retailers participate by refunding a portion of their sales to Christian school parents!

How Does it Work?
  • TRIP is held every Tuesday evening from 7-7:30p with a pick-up session Wednesday mornings in the rotunda from 8:30-9:00am.
  • TRIP is a completely parent-run volunteer program designed to benefit first the parent, then the school.
  • The TRIP Committee buys certificates at a discounted price and then sells them to parents who order and buy these certificates at face value. The discount, or rebate, is then credited to the family’s tuition account. 
  • Which retailers participate? Click https://shop.shopwithscrip.com/Shop/Product/Browse to see a list of retailers.  There are over 160 cards that are part of our TRIP and held in inventory by TRIP.  On our order form we have over 250 of the participating retailers listed for your convenience.  Click here for an order form.
  • Networking: Friends, neighbors, other family members, grandparents, etc., can help you just by putting their orders and checks in your envelope, or they may set up their own account by assigning their TRIP credits to benefit your family’s tuition account.
  • Future Families: Don’t have a child in school yet? This is perfect for you! Earnings can exceed a year’s tuition before your child even gets to school and then keeps helping out throughout his/her years through high school.
