Missouri Seal of Biliteracy

Visitation Academy senior Rose Fontana was awarded the Missouri Seal of Biliteracy (SoBL) from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This award is given to graduating high school students in districts with a DESE-approved program, who have demonstrated achievement in English, a language other than English, and sociocultural competence. Visitation is one of only two private schools in the St. Louis area that is eligible to offer the Missouri Seal of Biliteracy. There are only a few school districts in state of Missouri that have gone through the process to make the Seal of Biliteracy available to their students.

Rose was featured in recent issues of the St. Louis Review and Ladue News. Way to go, Rose!
