The California Senior Classical League

The California Senior Classical League

Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Indispensable


About Us


The California Senior Classical League is a state chapter of the National Senior Classical League, the college-level affiliate of the Junior Classical League. Throughout the year, we attend regional, state and national JCL conventions, lending a helping hand wherever we are needed. We provide a forum for Classics enthusiasts and JCL die-hards to build a community of like-minded individuals. If this sounds like you, join the ranks of the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent and indispensable SCLers.




You do not have to be enrolled in a Classics course or even know Latin to be a member of the California Senior Classical League. It’s true! All undergraduates are eligible for primary membership, meaning they can hold office and vote. Following the completion of your undergraduate studies, you enter into secondary membership in which you can no longer hold office. And if you really are just a life-long California SCLer, after four years of secondary membership you will reach the venerable tertiary status.


Primary membership dues are $6 for 4-years of membership. This includes NSCL membership dues!

N.B. Seniors in high school may register for primary membership as a “slasher”. You will still be held to all JCL standards and expectations, and will only be considered a CASCLer following the National JCL Convention after you graduate.

Secondary membership dues are $4 for an additional 4-years of membership. This includes NSCL secondary membership dues!

There are no fees for tertiary membership.
