Tuition Reduction Incentive Program
Sioux Falls Christian School offers a great opportunity for every individual family to reduce their own tuition through SCRIP. Sioux Falls Christian has provided this unique tuition reduction opportunity since September 1994.
Sioux Falls Christian purchases gift certificates from a national broker and local businesses in bulk amounts at a discount, and then resells those certificates to families at face value. The 'profit' earned is used to reduce tuition costs for the individual families that purchased the certificates, while one percent percentage is kept by the organization as a fee for running the program. An example of this is if you purchase $100 of HyVee gifts cards, $4 goes into your tuition account while $1 goes towards the school. You can lower your tuition without spending anymore than you are spending now. It’s that simple.
Our online program is called Shopwithscrip. With this program, you can manage your account through the Family Home Page. If you order the same products each week, you put them in your ‘Favorites’ for easy ordering in the future. You receive first hand updates on increased rebates or new stores. You can easily add funds to selected cards. It is easy for family members from out of town or state to use this and you still get the rebate from their purchases. And you can order as you go!
Three ways to use ShopwithScrip
1) ScripNow eCards can be purchased online and used instantly, either by printing at home and showing the code to the cashier or used in online shopping.
Local stores including HyVee, Sunshine, Lewis, Kum & Go, Holiday, Culvers, as well as others will not have the capability of ScripNow and will need to be purchased as physical cards that are picked up at school.
2) Physical cards are available for pick up at school on Fridays. Most national franchises are available. Local stores including HyVee, Sunshine, Lewis, Kum & Go, Holiday, Culvers, as well as others can be purchased and picked up in the TRIP/SCRIP office.
3) Reloading gift cards from the convenience of your home that you have already purchased through school.
If you want to purchase physical cards or pay by check with the envelopes that SFC TRIP/SCRIP provides, those orders still need to be in by 9:30 on Tuesday morning in order to pick them up on Fridays.
Whether you are a current family, a future family, or a Sioux Falls Christian supporter, you can participate in this great way to save money for yourself or for others! SFC parents receive the immediate benefit from this program while future parents planning to send their child(ren) to SFC can begin building up a fund. Any future monies earned are held by the TRIP/SCRIP office and then credited as a tuition payment when their child is enrolled at Sioux Falls Christian.
