Seal of Biliteracy

Fall 2022 testing dates for the Class of 2023 are tentatively set for Sat., Sept. 24, 2022 at Hinsdale South (registration deadline Sept. 17) and Sat., Oct. 1, 2022 at Hinsdale Central (registration deadline Sept. 24).  Registration will be open at the start of the 2022-23 school year.  Click HERE for the registration form.
 

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

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.
