ATS – Seal of Bi-Literacy Test Center

on November 1st, 2019 | Filed under School News

Dear Parents, 

As you all remember, in 2017-18 academic year,  ATS worked with The Georgia Department of Education and achieved a great milestone of getting the approval for Tamil language to be included for the Seal of Bi-literacy.  

Now, we would like to share one more recent achievement by ATS.  It is our pleasure and honor to announce that our school has been selected as an approved test center by Avant World Speaking to take the language proficiency test for earning the Seal of Bi-literacy.  With the approval of our school as the test center, your High school student can take the test at our school in a much familiar setting.  Please contact us for more details if your High school student is willing to take this test and earn the Seal. 

What is Georgia Seal of Biliteracy? 

It is to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. Please check the following link to get to know more about Seal of Biliteracy.

We sincerely hope that you all make use of this opportunity.
