International Skills Diploma Seal Application

Druid Hills has been announced as one of sixty-three schools in Georgia (and the only DCSD school) authorized by the Department of Education to award the International Skills Diploma Seal.

The International Skills Diploma Seal is awarded to a select number graduating high school students who complete an international education curriculum and engage in extracurricular activities and experiences that foster the achievement of global competencies. It is a signal to employers and higher education institutions that a student is prepared to participate in the global economy.

In order to receive the Seal, students must complete the following requirements:

  • 3 credits of the same world language and/or ESOL
  • At least four credits in courses determined to have an international focus
  • Participation in activities and experiences with global themes and/or in global contexts (e.g., exchange programs, international and language clubs, travel abroad, International Night, Model UN, debate)
  • Twenty hours of community service
  • Completion of Senior Project, Capstone presentation/Extended essay

We will be holding a brief information meeting for eligible seniors Friday at 9:45 in the Media Center.
