Seal of Biliteracy--One of the Goals for Our Spanish Immersion Students

The Spanish Immersion program at Ventana Vista started in the 2009-10 school year. We started with 20 kindergarten students and have grown to have more than 450 immersion students at our school. Not only does our program continue to grow, but we know that it is working!

The students from that first class of immersion students from Ventana Vista are graduating from high school this year. Each of these students who took the Arizona Seal of Biliteracy assessment received the highest level of recognition and received the CFSD GOLD Seal. Read below to find out more about this special recognition:

The Arizona Seal of Biliteracy is an award made by Catalina Foothills School District and the Arizona Department of Education to recognize graduating seniors who have attained proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English and at least one other world language. The Seal will be placed on an eligible student’s diploma and will also be noted on the student’s transcript. Students who earn this award will also be recognized by the Catalina Foothills School District Governing Board.

The Seal of Biliteracy is important because it:

  • Recognizes a student’s proficiency in English and another language;
  • Signals evidence of a student’s readiness for college and career, and for engagement as a global citizen;
  • Provides students with a way to document marketable global competencies that they have developed;
  • Recognizes the skills of multilingualism and multiculturality as strong assets in today’s global society;
  • Informs colleges/universities and employers about a student’s ability to communicate in English and another language and;
  • Honors multiple cultures and languages in our community.

Thank you for your commitment to Spanish Immersion education. You are giving your child a gift for a lifetime.
