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 (The Purple and Gold)



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 every day

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
