JCL Creed

We the members of the Junior Classical League, strive to promote the study of Greek, Latin, and ancient cultures.

JCL Song

Seeking to learn, with wisdom our goal,


Looking for lessons through stories of old.

Searching the realms of the ancient past,


We study the classics' works so vast.

In knowledge, service, and fellowship, we're growing everyday


The friendly hand of J C L aids in every way.

We'll join our arms and sing along


With every dear colleague.

And forever we'll hold to the Purple and Gold,


of the Junior Classical League.
