The Seal of Civic Readiness is a formal recognition that a student has attained a high level of proficiency in terms of civic knowledge, civic skills, civic mindset, and civic experiences. The Seal of Civic Readiness distinction on a high school transcript and diploma:
- shows the student’s understanding of a commitment to participatory government; civic responsibility and civic values;
- demonstrates to universities, colleges, and future employers that the student has completed an action project in civics or social justice; and
- recognizes the value of civic engagement and scholarship.
At the heart of Local Civics is a deep belief: informed citizens empower communities. We envision a world in which every person can meaningfully and authentically engage in and with their community. We believe that access to a high-quality education and the opportunity to develop important critical thinking and collaboration skills are fundamental to building strong communities and democratic institutions.
