SAVE with SCRIP in 10 minutes!! 

How would you like to have credit applied to your tuition account, or gift it to a MA family that you choose?  It's simple!  

On Thursday, September 13th, from 2:30 to 5:00, stop by the lobby at the Elementary campus.  Diane Whalen will show you how in 10 minutes.  Some families have had $500 or more applied to their tuition account, and it has not cost them an extra penny to do it. 

Current parent Dana Schmeckpeper says: “This is the greatest thing ever.  I don’t know why everyone is not doing it?  Last year, we put $80 per month toward our tuition just from buying gas and groceries.”  You will learn how to Shop for yourself or give gifts with SCRIP. We can set you up. Not only will you earn rebates to be applied to your own tuition, but part of the rebate will also be applied to the Academy’s general financial aid bank to help others.  It is a win-win!  Take a minute.  Guaranteed, it will be worth your time.
