T.R.I.P. (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program)

Local and national merchants participate by refunding a portion of their sales to Christian school parents. A volunteer 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. Participants may either come pick up instant trip orders (with payment) on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 or Thursday mornings from 8:00-9:00. Participants may also order gift cards, reload gift cards and order ScripNow (immediate ecards) online. Credits are totaled and account statements are run in October and April and applied to your tuition account. Click HERE to set up an account for online TRIP.

Parents of students, grandparents, neighbors, friends, anyone who would like to help defray the cost of Christian education. Even if you don’t have children in school yet, you can still participate through our future family program. This allows you to build up tuition credit for when your child starts school. The TRIP program is a completely parent-run, volunteer program designed to benefit parents first, then the school. Encourage your friends, neighbors and other family members to participate in TRIP, so they can help you reduce your tuition costs. All they need to do is specify, on the order form, your name as the recipient of the rebate monies. Even if you do not yet have a child at Jenison Christian School, TRIP is the perfect way to start saving!
