Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)
Contribute to the TRIP program to assist both present and future DCS families by giving them the opportunity to accumulate tuition credit.
How TRIP Works
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.
A participant can apply credit to a family or to Tuition Assistance, just indicate your preference on the order form. The amount of credit you have accumulated will be posted to your account two times a year in October and April. Relatives and neighbors may also order through the school and request that their credits be posted to your account.
New and exciting things are happening with our TRIP program. We have been approached by Great Lakes Script to consider an online-based program that will benefit the administration of our TRIP program as well as benefit you with the convenience of placing an order on-line.
If you are interested in ordering online, call our school office for more information. There will be a fee of $0.39 for each order filled online. The Weekly TRIP program will continue to be available for those who prefer not to order online.

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.”
