Pledge of Allegiance in Latin

Fidem meam obligo
Vexillo civitatium Americae
Foederatarum et rei publicae
Pro qua stat.
Uni nationi, Deo ducente,
Non dividendae
Cum libertatae
Iustitiaquae omnibus.

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.

These are the phrases used on last year's Graffiti Wall.

What is IJCL?

Illinois Junior Classical League is a statewide organization to promote understanding the value of the Classics.
