Seal of Biliteracy

Winter 2023 testing dates for the Class of 2023 are set for Sat., Feb. 18, 2023 at Hinsdale Central (registration deadline Feb. 10) and Sat., Feb. 25, 2023 at Hinsdale South (registration deadline Feb. 17). Registration will be open as of Jan. 2, 2023.  
 

What languages are available for testing on the above dates?
Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. 

What if the language I speak is not listed above?
Any seniors who speak any languages at home other than those listed above will be contacted later in the year by the World Language Department Chairs to arrange for alternative testing.  (Central-Jay Lawrence and South-Sarah Lombard). 

What if I've already taken the AP exam for my language?
Students who earn a 4 or 5 on their world language AP exam in Spring of 2022 automatically qualify for the Seal if they have at least a 480 on the SAT EBRW for English and therefore do not need to take the Saturday Seal of Biliteracy exam.  

Please read below about the Seal of Biliteracy program as well as access preparation information in the linked handout.
