About T.R.I.P.:

What is T.R.I.P? It is a Tuition Reduction Incentive Program. When you purchase gift cards and certificates from participating businesses through the school, a percentage of the money is given back to help reduce the cost of tuition.

Who benefits from the program?

  • Participating in TRIP can significantly reduce your family's tuition costs.  Families Preschool through 8th Grade are eligible to participate in the program.
  • If you have been blessed enough to not program for yourself, please consider donating your earnings to another family that may be struggling to meet the cost of Christian education.
  • You can choose to have your TRIP earnings go directly to the Financial Aid Fund to help offset the cost of Christian education for all families
  • Businesses who participate in the program benefit from your business. We can support the businesses in our community that choose to support Christian education through TRIP.

Ordering T.R.I.P.:

Ordering TRIP gift cards is simple and available in several ways - use whichever one is most convenient for you:

  • Check and Carry: This is available in the office at anytime the office is open.  You may purchase gift cards and certificates at face value and receive them right away. Please note, beginning 12/1/18, the office will NO LONGER accept any cash orders, checks only.
  • Order Form: The TRIP bulletin board across from the office holds the order forms that may be used for ordering gift cards/certificates - just fill out the form, and turn it and a check to the office at your convenience.  Any orders received by 8:00 AM Friday will be available for pick up in the office by 2:30 PM the following Friday

Note: if you are making a purchase of $10,000 or greater, you must place the order online yourself due to Federal Banking regulations.

  • Online Once you are registered for TRIP through GHCS, you are able to order online at shopwithscrip.com at your  Many retailers offer ScripNow, which is essentially TRIP that is available in moments rather than days, so consider checking out this option too.

This program has the potential to earn significant dollars for GHCS.  There are NO costs to you as the purchaser - all gift cards are purchased at face value; the free money that we receive is donated by the vendors who choose to support Christian education through the program.
