Overview: The Seal of Biliteracy is a prestigious award offered to seniors enrolled in an advanced level World Language class (level 5). The Seal project is designed to show students' proficiency in English and a second language offered at Carmel High School. Students work exclusively in the target language from beginning to end.  It starts with an oral proficiency Interview and ends with a presentation of four in-depth, multi-genre projects to a panel of evaluators, including teachers, administrators, and community members. Students who achieve an intermediate-high level of proficiency in the language are awarded a Seal on their diploma and a special stole at graduation.
