Have you considered joining the TRIP program? Earnings from TRIP can be considered to be “free,” as they result from regular purchases of gas, groceries, prescriptions, etc. which would have been made anyway! There is also no limit to the amount of funds each family might raise. Purchases made through TRIP can benefit your family too!

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I get started?

Enroll directly at www.shopwithscrip.com by following the prompts under “join a scrip program.”  Freeman Academy’s enrollment code is F2L134A922L38.  Or you may fill out the registration form and turn it in with your first paper order. 

How do I place an order?

Orders and payments may be made online at www.shopwithscrip.com, using the accompanying “Online Instructions” as a guide. Or you may fill out a paper order form, indicating at which businesses and in what denominations you would like to have gift certificates/cards. Add up your totals from both sides, enclose a check(s) made payable to FA TRIP and submit by 12:00 noon on the scheduled Friday to the designated box in the Business Office, the drop box inside the front door of the Administration Building, or the drop box in the entryway to the Et Cetera Shoppe.

When are the orders received?

Filled orders will be ready by the following Friday and can be picked up at the school office from 10:45-11:00 a.m. or from 11:30 a.m.-12:00 noon at the Et Cetera Shoppe. A parent MUST pick up the orders or authorize a proxy.

How do I receive credit?

Credits are indicated on the packing slip included with the filled order. Accumulated credits are calculated twice a year, in May and November. They can be posted to tuition accounts in May, July or November unless you elect to hold them until a future posting.

Can I order for other people?

Definitely! This is a great way to increase your credit amount. Ask friends and relatives to consider shopping with gift cards through TRIP, and simply include their orders along with your own. Or have family and friends create their own ShopWithScrip accounts so they have the opportunity to order e-cards or reloads independently.

Can our credits apply to another family’s account?

Indicate the recipient’s name in the “student” field when creating your ShopWithScrip account, or fill out the appropriate area on the registration form. 

What if I miss picking up my TRIP order on the designated day?
