Why is the Seal of Biliteracy important?
Earning a seal of biliteracy is important because knowing and using more than one language is a critical 21st-century skill.

- It recognizes the importance of language diversity and cultural identity.
- It prepares students to engage in the labor market and global society.
- It provides employers, universities and grant or scholarship providers with a method to recognize applicants for their dedication to attaining biliteracy.
