Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)
Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) at PCA
The Plymouth Christian Academy Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP), is intended to provide additional support to families in the payment of their tuition. Participation is open to all parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, and anyone in the community who wishes to support tuition reduction at PCA.
The PCA TRIP program purchases gift cards/certificates from ShopWithScrip®, which supplies gift cards for various restaurants, grocery stores, retail stores, and service businesses. ShopWithScrip® offers rebates on the gift cards purchased resulting in families sharing in the rebate. Families in the program purchase these certificates at face value. The difference (credit) between the TRIP purchase price of the certificate and the full face value of the certificate is passed on to participating families for tuition reduction.
For example, a $100 gift card with a 4% rebate brings a $4 rebate. Of this rebate, 100% is credited to the family tuition account! There are hundreds of retailers with rebates ranging from 2% – 16%. Keep in mind these are monies you would already be spending, but with a little planning, you can significantly reduce your tuition by purchasing gift cards in advance!
Participation is open to any family supporting a currently enrolled PCA student. Your tuition reduction rebate can be applied to your individual account, another family's account, issued as a cash refund, or donated as a tax-deductible gift to the PCA Scholarship Fund (a year-end giving statement will be provided for donations).
If you have any questions regarding TRIP registration, please contact the PCA TRIP Coordinator, Laura Imlach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
