BBPHS Seal of Biliteracy

The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.  The intent of the NYSSB is to:

  • Encourage the study of languages.
  • Identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers.
  • Provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission.
  • Prepare students with twenty-first century skills.
  • Recognize the value of foreign and native language instruction in schools.
  • Affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.
