NJCL Latin Honor Society


The NJCL Latin Honor Society is a special designation given to Junior Classical League students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and citizenship in Latin class. NJCL Latin Honor Society induction matters because it shows prospective colleges and employers that a student values high academic achievement and has maintained proper citizenship. Colleges especially value language honor society induction because they are eager to accept students who challenge themselves in meaningful courses and who succeed.

The Latin Honor Society membership is earned annually based on student performance.

The Honor Society registration opens on December 1 and ends on July 1. Teachers whose schools have awards ceremonies after July 1 are encouraged to order memberships before July 1 if at all possible.


To be eligible for membership in the Latin Honor Society, students...
  • are members in good standing of the National Junior Classical League; good standing means being registered with both the state and national organizations.
  • maintain an A average in the current Latin course.
  • exemplify good citizenship.
  • meet any additional requirements set by the teacher.
