K.I.D.S. Tuition Reduction Program
K.I.D.S. – "Kicking in for the Development of Students" (also referred to as SCRIP or TRIP) – is a tuition-reduction incentive program established to assist both present and future ACS families by giving them the opportunity to accumulate tuition credit.
Through this program bulk quantities of gift certificates are purchased from various grocery stores, retail stores and restaurants. These certificates are then sold to participating families at face value with the discount passed on in the form of a tuition credit.
One percent of the discount is retained by the school for operating costs and general tuition assistance. The discount that is passed to participants varies from 1%-17% of the total amount of certificates ordered, depending on the vendor.
The amount of credit you have accumulated for the year is designated on a sticker on the front of your envelope. This accumulated amount is deducted from your March tuition amount. Relatives and neighbors may also order through the school and request that their credits be posted to your account.
