The Seal of Biliteracy is new to the state of Virginia in SY2015-16 and will allow students who demonstrate proficiency in English (via successful completion of the 11th Grade Reading and Writing SOL exam) and another language (via demonstration of the Intermediate-Mid level of proficiency on a nationally-normed exam) to earn a special seal for their diploma and transcript. Participation in the Credit by Exam is a direct avenue to earning the Seal of Biliteracy. The VDOE website has information about this new endeavor.
For more information about either program, please see our website: apsva.us/worldlanguages and/or contact the World Languages Office at: 703-228-6097.
