Connecticut Seal of Biliteracy
The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given to seniors who have attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. Showcased on students’ diploma, and transcripts, it is evidence of readiness for career and college, and for engagement as a global citizen. Students may be enrolled in upper level language classes or be heritage learners of the language they would like to pursue for the Seal.
