Description

The State Seal of Biliteracy is an award provided by state approved districts that recognizes high school graduates who attain high functional and academic levels of proficiency in English and a world language in recognition of having studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. Our vision is to help students recognize the value of their academic success and see the tangible benefits of being bilingual. The State Seal of Biliteracy takes the form of a seal that appears on the transcript or diploma of the graduating senior and is a statement of accomplishment for future employers and for college admissions.

In accordance, 2022 graduates who earn the modified competency determination in ELA will also satisfy the English language criteria for the Massachusetts State Seal of Biliteracy.

Massachusetts accepts the College Board’s Advanced Placement exams as evidence of proficiency in World Languages. Based on ACTFL’s research , students who earn a 4 on a world language AP exam qualify for the Massachusetts Seal of Biliteracy, and students who earn a 5 qualify for the Seal with Distinction. By this correlation, the Seal of Biliteracy is a more rigorous measure than the AP exam, as most universities nationwide award credit for an AP score of 3.
