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 civilizations of Greece and Rome will help us understand and appraise this world of today, which is indebted to ancient civilizations 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.
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.
