Louisiana JCL is a state chapter of the National Junior Classical League, an organization of middle school and high school students sponsored by the American Classical League. It is composed of local and state chapters and is the largest Classical organization in the world today. Its purpose is to encourage an interest in and an appreciation of the language, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome and to impart an understanding of the debt of our own culture to that of Classical antiquity.
We are built upon a tradition of not only preserving the classics through conventions and education, but we are also an organization of community service.
Below are photos of the various events LJCL hosts and attends.
