Latin Students On the Move

Our students are also gearing up for the SC Junior Classical League (SCJCL) Spring Forum at Trinity Collegiate School in Florence, SC, which will take place on March 16. This statewide competition encourages students to showcase their knowledge of Latin and the ancient world as well experience camaraderie with Latin students from SCISA and other schools across the state. Students will compete in academic, art, costume, and Olympika (athletic) events. The SCJCL is affiliated with the National Junior Classical League (NJCL). This organization of junior and senior high school students, founded in 1936, is  sponsored by the American Classical League. Composed of local and state/provincial chapters across the United States, Canada, and Australia, the NJCL is the largest Classical organization in the world today with over 50,000 members. 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.
