The Georgia Seal of Biliteracy was established in 2016 to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, writing in one or more languages in addition to English.
To qualify for the seal, graduating seniors must meet the following requirements:
Completion of all English Language Arts requirements for graduation with an overall GPA of 3.0 or above in those classes; and
Proficiency in one or more languages other than English, demonstrated by passing a foreign language AP exam with a score of 4 or higher or an IB (SL or HL only) exam with a score of 5 or higher.
For languages in which an AP or IB exam is not available, please contact the GA DOE, Mr. Patrick Wallace, Program Specialist, to find out what other test may be taken and what score is required to determine proficiency.
To apply for the Seal of Biliteracy:
For seniors who took required exams PRIOR to their senior year:
Students may apply for the seal during their senior year IF they have already taken the required AP / IB/ or other test as determined by the GA DOE and received the required passing score.
The application deadline is March 1st of each year.
