MANGA is designed so that participating students can complete in three years the Japanese language content assigned in the Michigan High School Content Expectations (HSCE) for all four years of high school Japanese, as well as meet the Common Core National Standards. Semesters 1-4 of the GATE Japanese program correspond to two years of high school Japanese; semesters 5-6 correspond to a high school AP Japanese course. This is a hybrid course, meaning class is held both in person, in Southeast Michigan, and online. Need-based scholarships are available.
