Georgia Seal of Biliteracy

What is the Seal?

The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a school, district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation.

Why Implement it?

The Seal of Biliteracy encourages students to pursue biliteracy, honors the skills our students attain and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.

How Does a Student Earn it?

The seal of biliteracy is awarded to students who pass all four English classes in high school and score intermediate high level on the AAPPL (Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages) test given at JCHS. The AAPPL test is available in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and ESL (English as a Second Language).
