What is Scrip?
Scrip is a tuition reduction program that can be started at any time. Credit that is earned prior to your child’s enrollment at CPCS will be held in your family’s tuition account until they are enrolled.
How does Scrip work?
Scrip gift cards or certificates are ordered online from the order form at face value. These are for items that you would be buying anyway in your normal walk of life (groceries, fuel, clothing, restaurants, gifts, etc.) and they are “same as cash” at the retailer. Kohls allows you to pay your credit card bill with them, but they are the only department store that currently does this.
The school purchases these gift certificates at a discount (the amount of discount for each retailer is noted on the order form). The difference between what you pay and what the school pays is the profit. We split the profit: 85% of it is credited to your tuition account and the remaining 15% goes to the school to pay the expenses of running this program, along with a small amount of profit. Tuition accounts are credited 3 times per year, at which time it will show on your statement as a credit or you will receive a notice of the accumulated credit.

Once your order has been placed, you can pay by check, money order or Presto Pay. It is important to remember to send your payment to the school office marked SCRIP if you order online and choose not to use Presto Pay.
Important: Any order that has been submitted but not paid for by the date will NOT be placed.
