The myManzano portal is new for the 2019-2020 (and 2020-2021) enrollment year.

If you notice an error in the information displayed within the myManzano portal, please notify the Admission Office. There will be an opportunity over the summer to update profile information in preparation for the 2019-2020 school year, but we are happy to make corrections before then.
