The Capistrano Unified Council of Parent Teacher Student Associations (CUCPTSA) consists of 52 individual PTA unit associations - one at each of our schools - with over 27,000 members: parents, grandparents, teachers, principals, students (at our middle and high schools) and community members.  We are the largest of the 20 Councils in 4th District PTA (think: all of Orange County). Fourth District PTA is the largest (in membership) of the 29 districts that make up California PTA.  And, not surprisingly, California has more PTA members than any other state. (So we are the biggest of the biggest of the biggest!)


So with all this support we can do amazing things!  With individual involvement and group support, we can positively impact the lives of all children and families.  We can make a difference in our childrens learning environment and their safety, we can advocate for laws that protect children and provide adequate funding for their education.  And we can help with their spelling homework, chaperone a field trip, and attend a safe driving forum; pack a healthy lunch, volunteer in the classroom, and learn about social media.


Paying your membership dues to join PTA - the largest child advocacy organization in the country - is just the beginning.  
Welcome to PTA!
Get involved.  Lend a hand.  Make a difference for your child and all children.
