Opportunities to Reduce Your Costs

Jackson Christian School offers great opportunities for families to reduce their school bills, receive tuition credit and even waive (refund) the re-enrollment fee.

Reduce Your Costs at JCS

Reduce Your School Bill with TRIP

TRIP is a simple way to reduce tuition and fees. TRIP earnings can add up to a few dollars or more than $1,000 each year; it all depends on how you choose to use the program.

Retailers of all kinds, both national and local, offer their gift cards through TRIP. Retailers return a percentage of the cost of the gift cards you purchase to the school. The percentage that is returned accumulates in a TRIP earnings account. Once each year, in February, families choose how they would like their TRIP earnings applied; such as to your tuition bill or fees for the current or the following school year. TRIP at JCS is managed by a volunteer team. The team places orders, fills online orders and keeps up with all of the latest changes and improvements to make TRIP a great cost reduction opportunity.

Reduce Your Tuition by Referring a New Family

Referral Credit

JCS families are the very best form of advertisement for our school. When you share the school with others you help to strengthen the school for everyone. Families who refer new families are eligible for a one-time tuition credit of $200 for each new student referred, accepted and enrolled. Each new family is asked if they were referred by a current family. Connect friends and family with our Admissions Office or refer them to the school website and we'll take it from there.

Host a Small Group School Meeting

JCS will waive (or refund) the re-enrollment fee of $165 for any family who hosts a qualifying, in-home meeting. In-home meetings inform interested families about the JCS experience while in the comfortable setting of a home. A qualifying meeting will be attended by at least two interested families with at least one new student enrollment as a result. This is in addition to the normal referral credit.

For more information, contact the Admissions Director by email or by calling (517) 783-2658.
