TRIP (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program)

How TRIP Works 

Families purchase TRIP gift cards and use them instead of cash to shop at the stores or restaurants they normally frequent.  Hundreds of grocery, gasoline, retail, restaurant, online stores and more participate in TRIP.  You receive dollar-for-dollar gift certificates to use at your favorite places and each store donates a percentage of the total purchase to OLL.  PLUS, 50% of the percentage received by OLL is earmarked for your family to help reduce your tuition bill for next year.  During summer months and special times during the year, families can earn 60% or even 70% of this percentage!

How to Sign Up

Packets with registration forms are sent home at the beginning of the school year to parents.  You can join anytime. Additional packets and registration forms are available at the school office and the parish center.  You can also email TRIP@ollonline.org for information.

Ways to Order/Earn TRIP Credit

  1. Drop orders and payment into the Sunday collection basket at church.
  2. Shop online at shopwithscrip.com.
  3. Email your order by 5:00 pm Monday to TRIP@ollonline.org.  Make every attempt to drop payment off at the parish center by the next day.
  4. Purchase gift cards for a select number of retailers at the school reception desk during normal school hours or at the parish center after 3:00 pm and on weekends.  These are cash-and-carry cards limited to the inventory we have on hand.

Other Scholarship/Tuition Assistance/Financial Aid

The Alliance Catholic Credit Union offered $20,000 in scholarships to 10 students attending a Catholic High School League school in the 2020-21 academic year. This year, students are being asked to create and submit a meme that reflects how their faith inspires them to be the best in school, in sports, or in extra-curricular club activities. Students do not need to be members of Alliance Catholic Credit Union to enter the contest.  Ten (10) finalists will be selected and invited to participate in a short interview with a panel of representatives from Alliance Catholic Credit Union, the Archdiocese of Detroit, and a variety of Catholic Organizations in metro Detroit. From there, one (1) Grand Prize winner will be selected to receive a $6,000 scholarship. There will be one (1) $4,500 scholarship for 2nd Place, one (1) $2,500 scholarship for 3rd Place and a $1,000 scholarship for the remaining seven (7) students. Submissions are due online here by December 8, 2019.

In partnership with Vibe Credit Union, Our Lady of the Lakes was able to offer $6,000 in scholarships for current students enrolled for the 2019-20 school year. Interested students submitted an entry to the credit union through OLL. A scholarship committee at the credit union reviewed all the entries and determined the winners, one per grade, preschool through 11 Eligible applicants must be a member of Vibe (membership is available with a $5 deposit) and must be enrolled at Our Lady of the Lakes for the current and following school year.
