JCL Creed & Song

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 (The Purple and Gold)

Dave Clements, Max Spires, Mrs. R. G. Frazier

Revised by Mrs. B. H. Norveson


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 J.C.L. 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.
