World Languages Information

What is the Ohio Seal of Biliteracy?

The Ohio Seal of Biliteracy is an award for graduating high school seniors who demonstrate a high level of proficiency in English and at least one world language as demonstrated on state approved language assessments. This is an award recognized by the state of Ohio.


My child is not a high school senior. Why is this relevant?

Students who begin world language study in the 8th grade have more time to learn the language in order to achieve this designation. Study of a world language over the course of a student’s high school career (through year 4 or 5 of a language) will make him/her a strong candidate as a senior.
