California State Seal of Biliteracy

The State Seal of Biliteracy (SSB) is a recognition from the California State Superintendent of Instruction of graduating high school seniors who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing, in one or more languages, in addition to English. The SSB is an indicator of accomplishment for future employers and college admissions. It consists of a gold, embossed, seal affixed to the student’s diploma and is reflected on the student’s transcript.  Please visit

 for additional information, the application, and a registration link for AVANT Language Proficiency Exam (if needed).

The State Seal of Biliteracy is awarded at the end of a student's senior year; however, the requirements for the SSB can be met at anytime in high school.
