All students in the State of Michigan are eligible to apply for a Seal of Biliteracy endorsement. The endorsement recognizes students who show proficiency in English as well as at least one other language. Students must reach an Intermediate-High level on the ACTFL scale of proficiency in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
We especially encourage students whose home language is a language other than English to apply. Students do not need to be enrolled in a specific language class or in a school district to qualify for the endorsement.
