Quick Facts

What is TRIP?

TRIP is MCA's Tuition Reduction Incentive Program.

How it works: You purchase gift cards through Great Lake Scrip. Each gift card comes with a rebate and that rebate is applied towards your family's account at MCA. All you have to do is fill out the TRIP Enrollment Form, pay the $8 enrollment fee, and you will receive an email with MCA's school code so that you can set up your account through Great Lake Scrip. TRIP is your very own personal fundraiser! Anyone can sign up and designate to your family's account. If you have any questions please contact Katie Calloway or Shea Braswell

Do I need to fill out an enrollment form each school year?

Yes, TRIP participants must complete an enrollment form each school year and pay a $8.00 enrollment fee.  This helps cover the expenses related to the TRIP program, primarily shipping costs.

How can I use TRIP Tuition Credits?

TRIP tuition credits may be applied to TK-12th Grade Family tuition accounts and registration.

How and when do I pay for my TRIP order?

You must pay through Prestopay - a secure online payment.  Beginning August 2019, we will no longer accept checks or cash for TRIP orders.

Payment for your TRIP order must be received by 9:00am on Monday to be included in the group order placed by MCA for that week.

When will my tuition credits be applied?

Rebates will be applied to tuition and/or enrollment fees only ONCE per year beginning 2019-2020 school year.  All rebates will be from May 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020.

Funds can be designated to your family account, another family account you have chosen or to the General Tuition Assistance Fund.  

How do I place my TRIP order?

You must place your TRIP orders online at www.shopwithscrip.com, where you will set-up a family account using the MCA enrollment code.  Please email Katie Calloway or Shea Braswell.

When and where do I pick up my TRIP order?

TRIP orders placed on Monday by 9:00am will be available for pick-up on the following Friday.  You may pick-up the cards in the MCA Upper School Office or choose to have them sent home with your student.  

Is TRIP available year round?

TRIP is a year round program, with ordering available during the summer months on an every two week schedule.

Who can participate?

The great thing about TRIP is that anyone can participate to earn tuition credits toward a family account.  This includes MCA parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and neighbors!
