How Can I Join?

Contact a local school in your area. When you join PTA, you join millions of others who care about issues affecting children. The National PTA has local, council, district, and state-level PTAs operation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in the U.S. Department of Defense Schools overseas.
