The St. Joseph School Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P) is provided to St. Joseph families to help supplement tuition costs and the school budget. Grocery and retail stores sell certificates and gift cards to the school for a rebate. TRIP allows families to purchase these certificates and gift cards through St. Joseph School. The rebate is given back to individual families and to the school.


Enrollment is open to all St. Joseph School Families, as well as those who use the Religious Education Programs. Enrollment forms are available for sign up where TRIP is being sold. All families are permitted and encouraged to obtain orders from relatives or friends. Click here for en enrollment form.

St. Joseph School Green Certificates are also sold by using the same order form. They are a generic certificate which you can use at specific St. Johns businesses. No change will be given for these certificates and they should not be used for sale merchandise. A separate list of businesses is available. Please thank the local businesses for their support.
