Join Now


Chapters of the National Junior Classical League are the core way that students are affiliated with NJCL. Chapters must be in good standing with both NJCL and their State JCL. Students must be members of a chapter, or a member at large, to participate in everything NJCL has to offer, including membership in the Honor Society, attendance at NJCL Convention, or eligibility to apply for a scholarship, just to name a few of the benefits.

A Chapter may be formed by a ACL Member (regular category, which is open to non-teachers) with 1 or more students who are taking or who have taken a classical language or a course in the classical humanities. NOTE: To register a 2019-2020 NJCL Chapter your ACL Membership must be current.

Complete the NJCL CHAPTER FORM to register your Chapter.

In the event there is no NJCL Chapter, an individual member may become a member-at-large.  NOTE: If there is a chapter at the student's school, the student must join that chapter. Both options must also join the State JCL to be in good standing. Complete the MEMBER-AT-LARGE registration.

All NJCL chapters or members-at-large must affiliate with its state/provincial organization. For information about your state organization follow the appropriate link on the  STATE / PROVINCIAL PAGE.
