• The Seal of Biliteracy testing window starts on February 24th until April 1st.


    The Seal of Biliteracy is an award that can be made by a state department of education or school district to recognize students who have attained a certain level of proficiency in both English and at least one additional world language by graduation. It may take the form of a seal on the diploma or a separate certificate, and the Seal of Biliteracy award may include a notation that appears on the transcript of the graduating senior. Currently, in addition to the state of South Carolina, 35 states and Washington D.C. have approved Seals of Biliteracy. In other states, Seals of Biliteracy are under active consideration by state departments of education.
