Marist High School, through the Illinois State Board of Education, is pleased to have established the State Seal of Biliteracy Program to recognize graduating seniors who demonstrate a high degree of proficiency in English and one of the three world languages offered at the school. Those students who earn the Seal of Biliteracy have the official State of Illinois Seal placed on both their diploma and transcript, and are eligible to earn guaranteed college credit at all Illinois public universities and community colleges.
To earn the Seal, a student must show a high proficiency in the English language by achieving a qualifying score on the ACT, SAT, or AP English exam. In addition, the World Language student must demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking in either French, Italian, or Spanish by achieving a qualifying score on the ACTFL Assessment of Performance Toward Proficiency (AAPPL), or the College Board Advancement Placement French or Spanish Language Test.
Marist High School congratulates the following 2023 graduates who have earned the State Seal of Biliteracy in Spanish:
