The Seal of Biliteracy is a State-wide recognition given to graduating seniors who demonstrate proficiency in two or more languages.

To receive the Seal of Biliteracy or to be a Commended Student in the Seal of Biliteracy, students must score a 540 on the English Language Arts portion of the SAT, a composite score of 21 on the ACT and pass the STAMP test.

This year, Lincoln-Way had 127 projected Commendation students and 102 projected Seal Recipients.

The Seal of Biliteracy allows students to market themselves and earn college credits at public universities in Illinois,” said Amy Ficarello, Lincoln-Way West World Language Department Chair.

Student presenters addressed the audience throughout the event in German, French, Spanish and Chinese, sharing their appreciation for culture and language learning.

Katlyn Glatz, a 2006 Lincoln-Way East graduate and director at Kaplan International English School in Chicago, was this year’s guest speaker.

The Seal of Biliteracy event also recognized language “superstars” from Lincoln-Way feeder junior high schools.
