Before you begin

We hope that you will find this application easy to complete online. There are a number of financial records you will need. If your school did not provide a list of the necessary financial records, please click here for a downloadable pdf. Once you have gathered your financial information, it takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete the application online. Gathering your financial information is similar to collecting information to file your taxes and takes about the same length of time. You do not have to complete the entire application at one time. Your user name and password will allow you to access your data until you have completed the payment section.

There is a $43 US non-refundable application fee, payable by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, and American Express.) If you are unable to pay the application fee, please contact the school to which you are applying. If you do not have a credit card, you may purchase a voucher from your school that will allow you to complete the application.

Refer a Friend

Many of our current students have come to our school based on the referral of a friend or relative. Satisfied parents have always been our best form of advertising. We believe it is so valuable that we want to give you an incentive to spread the word about Chapel Hill. For every newly enrolled family that you refer, you will receive a $250 credit to your tuition. Referral incentives will be credited once the student has been enrolled for nine weeks. There is no limit to the number of referral credits that you can receive.

Combined with the very minimal tuition increase and programs like T.R.I.P., the opportunity to reduce the impact of tuition expense has never been greater. We hope that you will help us spread the word about Chapel Hill Christian School. If you have any questions about the attached form or if you need additional brochures to pass out to your friends, please let us know.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Chapel Hill Christian School.

FAQs

Q: TRIP participation seems like a lot of work. Is it really worth it?

A: Most definitely! Over the years families have applied over 2 million dollars (and counting) to school tuition, school fees and for non-profit fundraising!

Q: What do I do if I am having trouble with a card?

A: First, call the number on the back of the card to determine balance. If there is no balance speak to the operator and ask for card history information. Usually you will answer all of your questions with this information. If the operator tells you the card has never been activated contact TRIP Consultants North LLC.

Q: What do I do if my card is lost or stolen?

A: We highly recommend that you make a copy of the card to determine the balance.  If there is no balance, speak to the operator and ask for the card history.  Usually you will answer all of your questions with this information.  If the operator tells you the card has never been activated contact TRIP Consultants North LLC.

Q: Do my cards/certificates expire?

A: In most cases, they do not expire. If you have a question about a particular card’s expiration read the back of the card. If you find that a card is close to expiration or has expired, contact the number on the back of the card.

Q: Why does my credit information on my label go down sometimes?

A: Once a pay out of credits has been made the “buckets” get zeroed out and you begin saving again toward the next pay out. CHCS payouts will occur in November and April.

Q: Can I participate and transfer credits to another participating school?

A: Yes, CHCS will transfer credits.

Q: Can my non-profit team, church, or organization benefit from TRIP?

A: Yes. Contact Laurel Mayeux #330-608-7904 for details about non-profit programs.

Q: Why can’t I use a credit card to purchase gift cards?

A: The transaction fees charged by credit card companies would decrees or eliminate many of the rebates making the program less beneficial to you.

Q:  How do E*Certificates work?

A:  You may order E*Certificates any business day and expect to receive them by email two business days later.  It takes two business days to process payments.  If you order E*Certificates with plastic cards that order will process on Monday and be available on Wednesday by email.. Monday orders are received Wednesday, Tuesday received Thursday, Wednesday received Friday, Thursday received Monday and Friday orders received Tuesday. Weekend E*Certificate orders are considered Monday orders. (Remember holidays do not count as a business day and the order will start processing the next business day).  If you do not need the certificate and can wait for the plastic card you will generally save more. E*Certificates will be sent to the email that you signed up for TRIP from: [email protected]

Q:  I need a card sooner than the 4 day turn-around.

A:  Contact TRIP Consultants North LLC and we will do everything possible to help.
