The SCS SCRIP Tuition Rewards Program has been tremendously successful for you and our school! This year-long program is in place to help raise money for your family and for SCS! By purchasing grocery, retail, hotel and restaurant gift cards you earn a percentage of your total purchases that will be applied as a credit to your following-year tuition. By using SCRIP to make your everyday purchases, you earn money for SCS and for your families.
We urge you to take advantage of this pain-free way to reduce your tuition! Consistent use of the SCRIP gift cards is the key! And, your co-workers, friends, and relatives can help you buy SCRIP to receive the rewards and meet your goal.
There are some updates/changes to the program so please read through the program carefully. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact:

What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a term that means “substitute money”- in other words, SCRIP is a gift certificate from participating retailers.
How does SCRIP generate revenue for you?
SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates at full face value and redeem them for full face value. Our school receives half of the difference as revenue and your family receives the other half of the difference as a tuition reward credit.
*For Example: SCS buys a $100.00 gift certificate for $95.00 and we split the difference. $2.50 to your family and $2.50 to SCS!
