    About JCL

    The National Junior Classical League was formed in 1936 and is sponsored by the Americal Classical League. It is an organization for junior and senior high school students enrolled in Classical Courses. It was formed to promote the study of Latin and Greek and to empart an understanding of the debt which our own culture owes to that of Classical antiquity. The Junior Classical League is composed of local and state / provincial chapters across the United States, Canada, and Australia. The Junior Classical League is the largest in the world today with over 50,000 members.


    JCL Creed

    We, the members of the Junior Classical League, covenant to hand on the torch of classical civilization in the modern world. We believe an acquaintance with the civilization of Greece and Rome will help us understand and appraise this world of today, which is indebted to the ancient civilization in its government and laws, literature, language, and arts.

    We affirm the JCL experience develops responsibility, fosters brotherhood, promotes enthusiasm, encourages competition, inspires dedication, and enriches our total growth.

    JCL Song

    Seeking the best, the highest our goal
    Working for greatness through glories of old,
    Searching the realms of the golden past,
    We follow the classics' truths that last.

    In knowledge, truth, and fellowship, we're growing everyday.
    The friendly hand of JCL aids in every way.
    In Rome's proud steps we're marching on, with every true colleague,
    And forever, we'll hold to the Purple and Gold of the Junior Classical League
