How do I earn free money?
The purchase of scrip does not require any additional costs or fees. All you need to do is buy scrip (gift cards) for the things you are currently buying (food, clothing, toys, gifts, gasoline and other everyday essentials) through UC Academy. A portion of your hard-earned money will be returned to you in the way of a credit to your family’s scrip account. Just by making most of your daily purchases through scrip, you can earn enough money to pay for many eligible school expenses. Earn extra credit by having your family and friends purchase scrip through UC Academy and the credit they earn will automatically be applied to your account.
Scrip profits are split between UC Academy and enrolled school families. UC Academy families will earn 60% and UC Academy will earn 40%. Once your scrip account reaches a balance of $25, money can be transferred to your school account to pay for the various school expenses noted above. The minimum amount you can transfer is $25.

How do I get credit for purchases made by family and friends
When you family and/or friends establish an account at RaiseRight.com, instruct them to enter your student’s name in the student field. This will link their donations to your student and your family earnings.
- Please treat your gift cards like cash as they cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.
- Please order carefully – gift cards cannot be returned.
- All scrip orders must be picked up in the school office. The only students permitted to pick up orders will be high school students.
- If we receive a NSF from the bank for your check, you will be responsible for the $35 NSF fee, and will need to pay UC Academy in cash for your scrip order prior to obtaining the order.
- Please note that the scrip credit you earn is not transferable to another UC Academy family.
- Scrip credit is not redeemable at anytime for cash.
- If a family withdraws their children from UC Academy, the credit left in its account will be transferred into the school’s general account.
