Becoming an API Member

API members are part of a community of 340 families (registrations in 2019) and benefit from its network for information and help.
You can become an active parent in the life of your child's school through API. As a parents’ association there is always a need for parents representatives and parents elected to:

  • the Administrative Boards in Colleges, Lycée and CIV-EPA),
  • the School Boards in Primary and Kindergarten,
  • the International Section Boards at Sartoux Primary and Collège Eganaude,
  • as a class representative (Middle School and High School),
  • or you can just choose to be a member of the association.

API Membership Fee

In 2020 the registration fee is 10€ per family, regardless of the number of children registered in any of the schools where API is represented. Of course, you are welcome to contribute with a higher donation.
The 10€ membership fee can be paid by credit card or PayPal. (see below for registration on-line)
The annual fee is subject to revision each year in November at the API General Assembly where all members are invited to attend.
API is a non-profit organization governed by the law of July 1901 regarding associations.
