Santa Cruz High School PTA is an all-volunteer organization of parents working to improve and support our school, and to give our children the best high school experience possible. Our mission is to foster the educational experience for all of our students, including academic, social and community programs that promote a diverse, spirited, supportive and inclusive culture at the school.
Santa Cruz parents founded the Santa Cruz High PTA in 1913, making this our 107th year of community activism on behalf of our school. Join us in continuing
this proud Santa Cruz tradition!
We warmly welcome all Santa Cruz High parents, grandparents, guardians and alumni. The Santa Cruz High PTA meets on the second Monday of the month, September through May, at 6:30 p.m., in the school library. See you there!
