What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. The FRCS Scrip program allows you to earn money toward next years tuition. You produce revenue by making regular household purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip. FRCS buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families for full face value. The discount (from 2%-15% or more) is FRCS’s revenue and 90% of it is applied to your family’s tuition for the following fall.
