Seal of Biliteracy:

The Ohio Seal of Biliteracy exam is a rigorous, nationwide test that recognizes graduating seniors who can demonstrate high levels of proficiency in English and at least one other language. In order to receive this Seal, students must pass 4 sections of comprehension in listening, reading, writing, and speaking in a second language.
Students can begin taking the Seal of Biliteracy Exam fifteen months before graduation in over 100 different languages, including Spanish and French. The languages spoken at home may also be the object of testing in the four sections mentioned above. In other words, the language does not have to be taught in school. 
Being able to speak more than one language is a valuable asset that can open up many opportunities for students. For example, a Seal of Biliteracy can be a powerful tool to earn college credit, apply for a scholarship or study abroad program, and access greater career opportunities. In addition to providing many valuable opportunities for students, the Seal of Biliteracy encourages bilingual studies and recognizes the importance of language diversity. Additionally, the Seal of Biliteracy exam is given nationwide and is recognized in other states. Therefore, it provides universities and employers with a formal method to certify bilingualism.
Alira is the Latin equivalent of the Seal of Biliteracy exam. Students who pass the Alira can also earn the Seal of Biliteracy.
If you have any questions about the Seal of Biliteracy, please contact Andrea Kline.
