Ever wonder about the $50 Scrip charge on your tuition statement? Scrip is a fundraising program for Highland Catholic School that raises about $20,000 each year for school operations. But that’s not all! You can earn your initial $50 payment back. Here’s how it works.
Highland Catholic purchases gift cards from local and national vendors at a discount ranging from 2%-20%. Then you buy these gift cards from Hi-C at full face value. The school keeps the difference.

Marathon for Non-Public Education
Students in grades K-3, joined by parents, siblings, and even an occasional dog, participate in a mini-marathon event held during the school day in the Fall. Students in grades 4-8 join students from neighboring Catholic schools as a sign of solidarity for a school day walk at a predetermined site. What a great way to show school spirit! We would encourage all families to find some way of supporting our Marathon. It is a vital piece of our annual budget. We count on 100% participation.
