  • Pass Essential Skills in Reading and Writing in English
  • Demonstrate proficiency in a language other than English through one of these assessments:
    • Advanced Placement (AP): 4
    • International Baccalaureate
      • Lang B SL: 4
      • Lang B HL: 4
      • Lang A SL: 4
    • ACTFL: 7 or above on rubric scores
    • STAMP 4S: 6 or above in all areas
    • Willamette Promise: 74 or above
Students that are eligible during the spring of their senior year will receive the Seal shortly before graduation. For students that don’t receive their qualifying test results until after graduation, the Seal will be mailed to them the following fall.
