Seal of Biliteracy Awarded

Seal_of_Biliteracy_FINALTwenty-four members of the class of 2019 were awarded a Seal of Biliteracy for their outstanding achievements in English and a foreign language over the course of their four years at Marist.

Seventy-three students have been granted the seal for their diploma and transcript in just the past three years. The Seal is recognized by universities across the country and allows students to receive college credit for their accomplishment at the high school level.

There are many benefits to earning the seal, including that it demonstrates biliteracy and being on the path to fluency to future employers and universities. It also proves commitment to world language study and readiness to act as a global citizen. It is proof of oral, written, reading, and listening proficiency in Spanish and English or French and English. At Marist, students must earn a 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement World Language exam and score a 21 or higher on the English portion of the ACT.

Recipients will have an official seal placed on their final transcript. The following 2019 graduates earned the Seal. George Fanelli and Anna Simmons earned it in French and English. They rest earned it in Spanish and English.
