    With or Without the Definite Article

    If a parent-teacher association is set up under a school called "St. Joseph's College"? Do I need to have a definite article before the full of name of "St. Joseph's College Parent-Teacher Association", i.e. the "St. Joseph's College Parent-Teacher Association"?

    Thanks for helping.

    Not necessarily. "The" would be used to specify the association if and when the context required it.
