Tuition Bucks, SCRIPS

Families, teachers, friends, and others purchase gift certificates (SCRIP) from popular retailers at a discounted rate. The rate varies from 2%-20% and the difference or rebate amount is split between the family’s tuition account or designated classroom or fund and the Magnuson School.  The gift certificate or gift card (SCRIP) is then used like cash at the retailer, where it’s worth face value. It is just shopping a little differently.  Click here to learn more about the Magnuson Tuition Bucks program.
