The St. Paul of the Cross T.R.I.P. Service is a Tuition Reduction Incentive Program that gives participating families the opportunity to earn tuition credit and to raise funds for our school.
How the Program Works:
You purchase gift cards/certificates through the St. Paul T.R.I.P. Service. T.R.I.P. is able to purchase these cards at a discount. The discounts range from 2% to 30% of the card's face value and this percentage is our profit. This year we are offering 80% of the profit to our school families in the form of a tuition credit. This credit accumulates in your account with each order placed and is given to the school twice a year to reduce your tuition bill. The other 20% of the profit, after deducting T.R.I.P.'s expenses, is given to the school as a donation for miscellaneous improvements.
You place an order and pay $200.00 for Jewel gift cards. Use the gift cards exactly like cash and buy $200.00 worth of groceries. Jewel offers a 5% discount, so the profit for this order is $10.00. Your family earns $8.00 as a tuition credit and $2.00 goes to the T.R.I.P. account.
T.R.I.P. orders are placed once a week when school is in session. Order forms are due in the school office by 9:00 a.m. on Monday for delivery/pickup on Thursday afternoon. Orders must include full payment by cash or check.
