Most people believe we are a fundraising organization for our schools but...

Did you know?

Since 1897 -National PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America and has been the conscience of the country on issues affecting children and youth.

For 125 years, National PTA has worked with school communities and decision-makers to solve the toughest problems in our nation’s history. It all started with our founders—Alice McLellan Birney, Phoebe Apperson Hearst and Selena Sloan Butler. 

They had a simple idea—together, we can improve the future of all children. Alice and Phoebe, and later, Selena, understood the power of individual action, worked beyond the accepted barriers of their day, and took action to change the world for our children.

CUCPTSA (Capistrano Unified Council of Parent, Teacher, Student Association which SJHHS is one of the 57 schools within CUSD & CUCPTSA) is carrying on the work of our founders by advocating for every child with one voice in CUSD.
