The CCS TRIP program is a great opportunity to accumulate credit toward tuition obligations.

Here's how it works: 

Gift cards are purchased by you at face value. The school is given a discount and a percentage of the discount received is passed on to you in the form of a tuition reduction credit. Young families, intending to send their children to CCS may join the program prior to school enrolment. TRIP credits can be accumulated and applied in the first year your oldest child attends CCS. TRIP certificates are transferable to any Christian School affiliated with the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools (OACS) TRIP participants may also place orders for relatives or friends. As well, family and friends may register their own TRIP account and designate credits to a specific family or families. 

Two Ways to Participate:

In-House Orders: A few gift card options are offered in-house at a higher discount percentage than online as well as a few not offered online:

  • Loblaws - $100 and $250 denominations
  • Food Basics/Metro - $100

Things to Remember:

  • Gift cards are purchased on your behalf and are not returnable. 
  • Verify and report all gift card order errors within 24 hours to trip@ccshamilton.ca
  • NSF cheques will be charged a $35 fee. Your privileges may then be limited to cash only.
  • Gift cards are the same as cash and should be handled accordingly. CCS will not be responsible for gift cards that are lost, stolen, or misplaced while in your possession.
  • Once per year, you will receive a tuition reduction certificate. You will need to sign the certificate and return to the Finance Office to be applied to your account.
  • If your portion of tuition earnings is less than $10 per year, it will be transferred to the school’s tuition assistance account.
