Scrip FAQ

How does the Scrip program earn money?

We purchase gift cards at a discount.  Then we sell you the gift cards at the full price, or face value.

How does the tuition rebate\credit program work?  
Each time you purchase Scrip gift certificates, you earn a rebate.  70% of the profit earned will be applied to your family’s account.  The Scrip general fund earns the reamining 30%.  The more Scrip you buy, the more tuition credit you earn. Tuition credits are applied to tuition first then to other school fees (e.g.: before or after school care, lunch, other fees).
Tuition credit is applied to your account three times a year - December, April and June.
Any unused credits will be carried over to the following school year. Any unused Scrip profits earned by families who will not have children enrolled at Isaac Newton Christian Academy the following school year, may be assigned by that family to another family.  If unassigned, it will be diverted to the Scrip general fund.
How do I get started?  
Complete a Scrip enrollment form online or in the office.  Then start buying Scrip cards in person or online.  
A couple of tips:
  • Do not combine your Scrip check with other school fees.
  • We require adults to pick up certificate orders, as Scrip volunteers cannot be responsible for lost certificates.
  • Plan ahead for shopping, travel and home improvement.
  • For last minute shopping, join the ShopWithScrip to instantly add funds.  Contact the Scrip office to get started.
What is Quick Scrip?  
Quick Scrip is an inventory of certificates that are available for purchase without placing an order in advance.  The inventory contains gift cards that are most popular among Scrip users.  During the school year, Quick Scrip is available for sale during office hours (8 am - 4 pm).
Can I donate Scrip earnings to another family or to the scrip general fund?  
Yes, by filling out the Scrip enrollment form or from the scrip coordinator, you may assign your share of the earnings to another family (which you designate) or to the scrip general fund of Isaac Newton Christian Academy.  
Can extended family members or friends earn tuition credit for my family?  
Yes, anyone is welcome to participate in the Scrip program.  They can assign their share of the Scrip profits to your family’s account by filling out the Scrip enrollment form.
