Seal of Biliteracy

The Seal of Biliteracy is an award that recognizes students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. This award encourages students to pursue biliteracy and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.

For questions about the seal or to see if you quality, talk to your World Language teacher or Academic Advisor. 

Congratulations to our 2018 graduates who received the seal on their diploma from the California Department of Education!
