Students in grades 7-12 who have proficiency in another language have the opportunity to take a proficiency exam and potentially earn up to four world language credits in nearly 100 languages.  It is important to note that credits cannot be duplicated on a transcript, nor can a proficiency test replace a previously earned grade taken in high school.  Please see the CBE Brochure English 2019-20 and/or the FAQ section for more information.  Below you will find brochures in other languages.

Registration for the 2019-20 school year is open and will close on October 4th, 2019 at 11:55 p.m. Testing for most languages is scheduled the morning of November 5, 2019, at Wakefield High School.  Students will be notified of their check-in time and testing location.  Testing lasts anywhere between 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on the test type.  

Some languages such as Amharic, Bengali, Farsi, Hebrew, and Mongolian require a different test and students will be contacted directly with time and date.

Informational brochures in Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Urdu, and Mongolian appear below.
