Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)
Through this program, bulk quantities of gift certificates are purchased from various grocery stores, retail stores, and restaurants. These certificates are then sold to participating families at face value with the discount passed on in the form of a tuition credit. DCS will retain a 15% administrative fee on your total earnings for operating costs. Once enrolled you can visit Quick TRIP where you pay for and pick up your certificates at the same time. During the school year, the Weekly TRIP program is available by filling out an order form and bringing it to the school office along with your payment by 8:15 am on Wednesdays and pick up your certificates the following Wednesday afternoon from the North Campus office (unless designated to be sent home with a student).

Dutton Christian School does not in any way endorse or promote the participating stores.
Dutton Christian School also has a number of scholarships available. These are open to all Dutton Christian families who wish to apply. Funds raised determines the number of scholarships available. Scholarships will be awarded by the start of the school year by our Scholarship Committee.
We are blessed to have 3 endowed scholarship funds and 1 temporary scholarship fund that families have started in the DCS community that are included as part of the scholarship program. Two are memorial scholarships for students at DCS. The Kevin Jay Lucas Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of DCS student Kevin, and has been awarded annually to a family with financial need and primarily to a student that benefits from academic support or some other form of inclusive education. The Jack Boerema Memorial Scholarship has been established in memory of Jack Boerema, a pre-school student at DCS. Both of these scholarships require a separate application. See the links at the bottom of the page for the 3 different scholarship application forms.
Scholarship applications are available and accepted until April 15. Scholarships are awarded by May 31.

Why Dutton Christian School
Hear what some of our parents have to say about their experience here.
20 Years & Counting
“In the Fall of 1985, the first of our 3 boys started Kindergarten. We were so impressed with the staff and the commitment of the parents sending their children to DCS. As years passed, we became very involved in the school which gave us an inside look at how the school was run. We loved DCS over all the years our boys were there (1985-1999).
Now, here we are 20+ years later, so grateful and blessed to have grandchildren at DCS. And guess what, it is STILL the great school it was many years ago! Thank you administrators and staff for staying faithful & true to the mission of Dutton Christian School! To God be the glory!”
Greatly Impacted My Life
“Dutton Christian School has greatly impacted my life. As a former student of DCS, I have experienced the amazing commitment to Christian Education from each of my teachers. They diligently walked alongside me to nurture not only my mind but also my spirit. In addition, as a parent of 3 children who attended preschool through 8th grade at Dutton Christian School, I have always felt that my children were valued by their teachers as a unique child of God. Furthermore, I have been blessed to be a teacher at Dutton Christian for over 11 years. As a teacher, I have experienced the loving support of the DCS community, a community deeply rooted in their faith. In many seasons of my life, Dutton Christian School has made a great difference and an eternal impact!”
-Kerri Nitz, 6th grade English and Language Arts teacher
I Have Created Great Friendships
“My experience at Dutton Christian has significantly impacted my life to live for Christ. The teachers genuinely care about students, and I have created great friendships. Biblical knowledge is incorporated through each class, and I will always remember the important life lessons that I have been taught by Dutton Christian.”
