The Capistrano Unified Council of PTSA, better known as CUCPTSA, is comprised of PTA units from 51 schools in the Capistrano Unified School District, and represents over 24,000 members.  Our mission is to empower our units, families, and community members to become effective advocates for all children and youth, and to positively impact the lives of all children and families. CUCPTSA officers and committee chairs work closely with our member units to provide training, mentoring, information, and guidance to be successful leaders and advocates. CUCPTSA also serves as a channel of communication between the state and district PTA and individual PTA units.

In addition to providing assistance to our member units, CUCPTSA recognizes student achievement in the PTA Reflections program, and sponsors a district-wide college fair. We send members to Sacramento to advocate for school funding, and, closer to home, support high school students enrolled in our district continuation school. PTA is a registered 501(c)(3), and by joining your local unit, you can not only support important programs, but also become part of the largest child advocacy organization in the country.
