Connecticut Seal of Biliteracy

The Connecticut State Seal of Biliteracy recognizes public high school graduates who have attained a level of proficiency in English and one or more languages. Proficiency is determined through scoring on one of several state approved assessment tools.

Many of our ELL students are able to achieve the Seal of Biliteracy recognition!

Students meeting the criteria for biliteracy receive a seal affixed to their diploma and to their high school transcript. The marker is useful to both employers and to colleges and universities. It helps to identify students with verified multilingual skills.
