SCRIP

Scrip is a way to buy the things you normally buy while supporting your school at the same time! The scrip office is located in the main school office.

SCRIP Office Hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 4:00.  For more information, contact us by phone at 574.267.5788. Some of the most frequently asked questions about scrip are listed below.

WHAT IS SCRIP?
Scrip is a nation-wide fund-raising program for schools and not-for-profits where merchants issue gift cards and gift certificates at a discount to an organization, which in turn sells them to their constituents at face value to be used like cash at the stores. These are the same gift cards you would receive if you drove to those stores to purchase them.

HOW DOES IT BENEFIT WCS?
The discount is our profit. $100 worth of Scrip purchased at a 10% discount costs us $90. When that is sold to our school families we realize a profit of $10.

WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Help Our School
. Every time you use Scrip, you are making a donation to WCS that doesn’t cost you anything because it is money you would be spending anyway.  The Scrip profits are used to offset the difference between actual tuition cost and actual tuition revenue received per student, thus helping to contain tuition costs.
Help Your Budget. WCS families can earn tuition credit for every Scrip dollar spent,
as 50% of the profit from all purchases will go towards a voucher that can be applied
towards tuition at WCS or LCA.
Help Another Family by designating the profit from your Scrip purchases to go towards their tuition voucher.

HOW CAN I PURCHASE SCRIP?

  • Walk-in hours at the Scrip Office (School office) are Monday and Friday, 8:00 – 4:00 during the school year.

 HOW DO I PAY FOR SCRIP?
We accept cash, personal check or money order.

ARE SCRIP CERTIFICATES GOOD EVERYWHERE?
The Scrip certificates for national chains are good all across the country. This makes them ideal for gift giving to friends and family who live far away.

WHEN DO I GET MY VOUCHER?
Because the school fiscal year goes from July 1 to June 30, we issue tuition vouchers once a year in January.

WHO CAN PURCHASE SCRIP?
Anyone! Your family and friends may purchase Scrip on your behalf and add their profit to yours. Businesses also use Scrip for office parties, Christmas gifts and bonuses, customer appreciation, employee incentives, etc.
