Due to their commitment to learning foreign languages, several students from the Babylon Junior-Senior High School successfully completed the requirements toward earning the New York State Seal of Biliteracy, and were treated to a ceremony held in the Babylon Junior-Senior High School library.

In order to qualify for this prestigious award, students had to complete their ELA Regents with an 80 or better, complete their 11th and 12th grade ELA classes with an 85 or better and achieve a 3 or higher on their English AP Exam in Language and Composition. Their requirements for World Language (either Spanish or French) included an 85 or better in a Checkpoint C level language course (College Spanish or French), along with a project which included a scholarly essay at the ACTFL Intermediate High Level that they presented and defended to the foreign languages committee. 

The Babylon School District congratulates the following Babylon Junior-Senior High School students for earning their Seal of Biliteracy – Sydney Altbacker, Katherine Bencivenga, Olivia Berry, Joseph Conti, Julia Drake, Lauren Grabow, Agnes Goldin, Catherine Hernandez, Pavani Kumar, Ryan Marrone, Dylan Pané, Allison Wexler and Hira Yousuf.
