Parent-Teacher Association
The CAJ PTA is an organization that supports the ministry of Christian Academy in Japan in fulfilling its mission of equipping students to impact the world for Jesus Christ.

The PTA is led by an executive committee that is responsible for its activities.

Volunteers are needed to assist in the many and various activities for which the PTA is responsible. If you are interested, please fill out the PTA Volunteer Form ( PDF | Word ).

All profits from the Thrift Shops, less 10% tithe, are used for various school projects. The tithe monies are used to support students on short-term mission trips. Some projects recur annually, such as underwriting part of the cost of the 8th grade and senior class trips.  Other requests for equipment, services, or activities not included in the current school budget are presented to the executive committee of the PTA at its monthly meetings after having been approved by the CAJ Leadership Team.

Discover more about the CAJ PTA by using the links in the "Life@CAJ" menu at the top of every page. Any questions you have may be directed to pta@caj.or.jp.
