What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is fundraising for our school while you shop and purchase items that you are already buying. This doesn't cost you any more than you are already spending.
How does SCRIP generate funds for us?
The Great Lakes SCRIP center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the SCRIP is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates at face value. The bulk of the discount - from two to fifteen percent or more - is retained by us, the Bosco System, as revenue. This program contributes a substantial amount of money to our school system each year.
Why should I use SCRIP?
When you purchase SCRIP, you earn tuition credit based on your purchases. 25% of the profit earned on your purchase is applied to your school account as a tuition credit. You accrue this credit throughout the school year through June 30th and the total amount of your credit is applied to your tuition statement in the fall. If you have a senior who is your last student in the school system, you will accrue credit through April 15th and will receive that credit prior to paying your final tuition bill before your student graduates. You can reduce the amount of your tuition simply by purchasing SCRIP on a regular basis for things you are already buying.
You buy a $100 Walmart/Sam's card and the profit earned is 2.5% or $2.50. You earn 25% of that profit earned or $.63. You buy a $100 Kwik Star card and the profit earned is 10% or $10.00. You earn 25% of that profit earned or $2.50. The school retains the rest of the profit earned.
Who can use SCRIP?
Anyone can use SCRIP. Parents, students, teachers, administrators, grandparents, neighbors, and businesses. Anyone who is interested in supporting our school system or in reducing their tuition for themselves or for their family members can do so by purchasing SCRIP. Ask your parents, brothers, and sisters to purchase SCRIP and apply the tuition credit to your account. Each family has a family ID number, if you do not know your number, please contact the school and ask for it. Family ID lists are located wherever SCRIP is sold. Anyone who purchases SCRIP and does not have any students in school and wants to give their rebate credit to another family can do so by filling out a form to indicate who the credit should go to. Ask for your form at either bank location or contact the school. You can also split your credit among more than one family. For example, you are a grandparent with 4 families of grandchildren in school. You can give each of them 25% of your credit towards their tuition bills. The percentages can be split any way you want, they just have to total 100%.
Where can I purchase SCRIP?
SCRIP can be purchased in several ways:

Send your order form with payment to school with your student (K-12) and your SCRIP order will be filled that day and sent back home with your student. You must have a Student Delivery Form (see link at top of page) on file with the school to deliver SCRIP through your student.
3. Mail in your order form to school at the following address (please include direction on where you plan to pickup your order. We do not mail SCRIP out, as it is like sending cash in the mail and very risky):
