Crimson Global Academy (CGA) prepares you for university and beyond.

CGA is an online high school, connecting students with top faculty in small, virtual classrooms. Students join global peers, studying the A-Level, AS-Level, International GCSE curriculum as well as the Advanced Placement (AP) qualification.

CGA is for high school-aged students (between 13 to 18 years old), however, we often accept early enrolment for exceptionally bright students who are emotionally ready for the challenge.

Our Virtual Classroom
We are synchronous. Our small, virtual classrooms are ‘live’ no matter where you live in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We have selected Pearson Edexcel and College Board as our curriculum partners. These qualifications are recognised for their academic rigour, flexibility and breadth of learning.

We believe in a learning approach based on competency and maturity, not age. This means students are free to unlock their full potential in studying advanced coursework. Over 45% of our current CGA students are studying at an accelerated level.

Study part-time or full-time, you choose! Whether you complement your traditional school with additional CGA subjects or replace your traditional school, you’ll benefit from the flexibility of classes offered during the day, evenings and weekends.

Our Faculty
We select the best. As a virtual school, we are not limited to faculty from the local area, we are able to select the top teaching talent from around the world. Our teachers hail from the UK, US, New Zealand, Australia and have taught curious minds worldwide.

CGA’s Academic team has an outstanding track record of performance and experience. Our team has an average teaching experience of over 20+ years in leading schools, with qualifications from the world’s top universities, such as Cambridge and Princeton.

Our Academic staff have tutored for National Olympiad teams, taught students that achieved the Top in Country and/or the World for subjects, taught students with perfect scores for the Standard Assessments Tests (SATs) and more.

Our faculty dedication, depth and passion for teaching inspires and builds confidence in students to achieve their potential.

Our Results
We are a young school, with impressive student achievements. In their recent A-Level exams, 75% of CGA students scored an A, with 33% of students achieving perfect 100% scores. Our International GCSE results are just as impressive with 70% of students achieving an A (8/9 range). These scores are well beyond the world averages.

At CGA, we focus on the academic growth and holistic development of students to prepare them for success in their futures.

Student Experience
At Crimson Global Academy learning starts in the classroom but extends far beyond. Classmates from 20+ countries around the world socialize and engage with classmates through our Community Hub, accessing study spaces, social activities, and examination centres. Students also have access to our virtual Community Hub, engaging in discussion groups, extra-curricular interests, university and career counseling, and more!

Our ECL programme is built to inspire passion and curiosity in our learners. CGA students have access to a wide variety of Extra-curricular and Leadership (ECL) opportunities, including exclusive and unique opportunities, such as Debating Club, led by a World Champion Debater, and Internship opportunities at PwC.

CGA students are provided with world-class support in career and university counselling. CGA was founded by the CEO of Crimson Education, Jamie Beaton, a graduate of Stanford, Harvard and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University. Crimson Education is the world’s leading US/UK admissions preparation & support company. CGA graduates are poised to follow in the footsteps of Crimson Education alumni to attend top institutions worldwide.
