One of the main pursuits of MDJCL students: win at Certamen! This is a Jeopardy-like game with questions from Roman history and culture, Latin vocabulary and grammar, Greek/Roman mythology, English derivatives, and general Latin comprehension. Students compete on teams of 1-4 against other schools at either Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced Level.

Sometimes we even attend Virginia certamina...though they're a bit intimidating sometimes.

In 2016, we took our first museum trip as a state organization and plan to make it an annual event.

We attended the Vatican Exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia


Ah money...required for so many things that we do. Different schools try different acts of desperation. Below is Easton High School's bakesale around Christmas, 2015


Especially at convention, really interesting activities tend to occur

Like Greek dancing!

Talent show performances

National JCL Convention
