ACRA is an organization that is primarily made up of retired personnel with ties to the English school systems (public or private) of Quebec.

This Association was founded by retired school and school-commission administrators of the former English Catholic schools of Quebec, upon the creation of linguistic school boards on July 1, 1998.

The above restructuring of the school system resulted in the dissolution of a number of professional associations, including the Association of Directors of English Schools (ADES) and the Quebec Association of Catholic School Administrators (QACSA), the provincial associations to which the above mentioned administrators had strong ties after retirement.

Consequently, seed money was provided by ADES and ACPM (The Association of Catholic Principals of Montreal), an affiliate of QACSA, to promote the establishment of an association for retired administrators from the English catholic school system of Quebec.

With time, and to insure the continued success of the Association, ACRA realized that the original membership had to be expanded.

ACRA acknowledges the foresight of the founders of this organization, former members of ADES and QACSA, the original members of the Association of Catholic Retired Administrators.
