With nearly six million members, PTA is the largest volunteer parent organization in the United States.  Since its founding in 1897, PTA has prided itself on being a powerful voice for children, a relevant resource for parents, and a strong advocate for public education. 


The Mission of the PTA is threefold:

  • To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;

  • To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children; and

  • To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation. 


Membership in the Centennial High School PTSA is open to anyone who is concerned with the education, health, and welfare of children and youth.

How do I Join the PTSA?

Why should our family join the PTSA?


The Centennial High School PTSA survives solely on membership dues and fundraisers, we do not receive any school or government funding. Without you, there is no us. Please join to keep your PTSA and Centennial High School strong.


How will my membership help my child?


Your child will benefit from the programs the PTSA supports which are not funded by state and district budgets. 


What are my responsibilities after I join?


Membership in the PTSA does not require any particular action on your part. For example, you don’t have to attend meetings or provide volunteer assistance for PTSA-sponsored activities – although we hope you’ll choose to do so!
