TRIP Program

Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)

This program was originally instituted to help relieve the burden that tuition payments put on some of the Bethany Christian School families. Bethany Christian School families, along with their friends, co-workers, and extended families, have ordered almost $1,000,000 in TRIP certificates since the program began in 2003. This program would have not have commenced or continued without the hard work of many volunteers.  Our special thanks to all those who have worked very hard to get this program up and running.

TRIP certificates are gift certificates that can be used like cash. The families that purchase the certificates through TRIP have earned well over $100,000 dollars in tuition credits during this time. It is a simple concept that requires little more than weekly pre-planning on the part of the families that use the program. You decide where you will shop and how much you will spend.

Many of the certificates now come as plastic prepaid debit cards from which the exact amount of your purchase can be deducted, thereby eliminating the need for change.

Check out the list of stores and the rebate percentage each will give you in the form of tuition credit. You can even begin to accrue TRIP credit before your child is enrolled. We will hold the money for you until your child is a student here. Tuition earned by current Bethany Christian School families is credited on a monthly basis to their tuition account. (No cash will be given out if the child never registers as a student at Bethany Christian School.)
