“The LORD is with me” – Psalm 118:6

Current Costs & Scrip

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it (Proverbs 22:6).  We are thankful for the high value our families place on Christian Education the investment of training the children and young adults of our area in God’s Word on a daily basis.  Education, and especially Christian Education is expensive.  We recognize this at Winnebago Lutheran Academy. We work hard to keep the cost of education down while continuing to provide our students with a well-rounded and excellent education.  With generous support from our Association churches and donors, we have been able to remain the most affordable Lutheran, and private high school  in our area.

Christian Education at Winnebago Lutheran Academy is valuable.  Our students are equipped for all major universities and colleges, for entering the workforce, and for entering the military.  More importantly, our students are equipped for eternity because of the precious promises of forgiveness and eternal life in Christ Jesus – promises shared with our students every day.  That is what makes education at WLA so valuable. It is an investment for eternity.

What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term meaning substitute money,  and is a universal name for real and negotiable paper gift certificates or prepaid debit cards that are used just like cash. The scrip is issued by national and local retailers where many of us already shop. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing and other essentials, and with every purchase you earn revenue for you and WLA.

How Scrip Generates Revenue
The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. WLA buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount and re-sells it to families like yours for full face value. The discount – ranging from 2 to 15% or more – is WLA’s revenue. On the WLA Scrip Order Form, the % listed next to the vendor’s name is the discount received from that vendor. For example, Festival Foods is 3%, so every $100 gift card earns $3.00. You pay $100, we send $97 to Great Lakes Scrip Center, and $3 is kept in the WLA Scrip Account. There are many local vendors that also participate and are included on the order form.

How Scrip Helps WLA Families
60% of the revenue generated by your purchase (your family and friends can also order and help with your child’s tuition) is credited to the tuition of your student, or any current or future student you choose (will be in the Money Market until needed), or to the Tuition Assistance Program. (Students who withdraw or do not enroll cannot receive cash for their credit. They can choose to give it to another family or to operations.) The remaining 40% will go into 3rd Source Income.

How Do I Get Scrip?
An order form can be downloaded here, or you can pick one up at WLA in the main office or on the table near  Door #l (gym entrance). When complete, send the order form and payment to WLA, attn: Susan Wright, or drop it off in the locked drop box in the WLA Main Office, by 4:00 on Thursday. We will place an order every Friday unless we let you know different. Your scrip order will be ready on Thursday to be sent home with a student or picked up in the WLA Scrip Office. As noted on the Scrip Order Form, you can go to www.glscrip.com to get the list of all vendors available (too many to fit on our order form). There is a place on the back of the order form to write in any scrip you want that is not on our order form.
