SEAL OF BILITERACY FAQ

STAMP 4S INFORMATION

The Seal of Biliteracy is an award made by Catalina Foothills School District and the Arizona Department of Education to recognize graduating seniors who have attained proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English and at least one other world language. The Seal will be placed on an eligible student’s diploma and will also be noted on the student’s transcript. Students who earn this award will also be recognized at Catalina Foothills High School's Senior Honors Night.

The Seal of Biliteracy is important because it:

  • Recognizes a student’s proficiency in English and another language;
  • Signals evidence of a student’s readiness for college and career, and for engagement as a global citizen;
  • Provides students with a way to document marketable global competencies that they have developed;
  • Recognizes the skills of multilingualism and multiculturality as strong assets in today’s global society;
  • Informs colleges/universities and employers about a student’s ability to communicate in English and another language and;
  • Honors multiple cultures and languages in a community.
