Students can start M.A.N.G.A. in 7th, 8th, 9th, or 10th grade. For example, a student who wants to start M.A.N.G.A. in 7th grade needs to apply in the spring semester of 6th grade.
Students must submit the following with their M.A.N.G.A.application:
- ACT or SAT scores of at least:
- ACT English: 20 and ACT Critical Reading: 20
- New SAT taken in March 2016 or after:
- SAT Evidence Based Reading & Writing: 520
- SAT Total: 1020
- Teacher Recommendation Form from your current English or foreign language teacher
- Most recent grade report with strong grades
Please note: Students need to meet the criteria for the ACT or SAT. Students need to take and submit scores for only one of these tests. An IQ test is also acceptable instead of these standardized test scores.
