Crimson Global Academy

Please post any new questions on Crimson Global Academy here and we will return with answers asap! Thanks!

If me and my brother start at they same time, do we get a discount?

What term structure does Crimson Global Academy follow?

Are all of the Crimson Global Academy teachers based in New Zealand?

Also, I was wondering what the difference is between attending Crimson Global Academy and a regular high school?

How is a day structured at Crimson Global Academy? Are classes pre-recorded?
What size are the classes? Would I be able to meet classmates in person here? Want to know more around general setup. I also have done my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh already - can this school help get my Gold?


I row for a private club and am hoping to get a scholarship to the US, does the Global Academy support athletes or is it just for academics? What year level do you have to be to enrol when you start accepting students and how do know what year level your in at this school? Do you have to get high marks to get in? I don’t have many HD’s but I have a lot Distinctions. Also, there’s no uniforms since it’s all online, right?

Hi @ollie225,

Great to hear from you! It’s fantastic that you’re starting to think about the important steps to apply for top US universities, and Crimson Global Academy is here to help. We accept students based on academic or extracurricular talent and you will be placed into the appropriate year level based on this. And no, there aren’t any uniforms!

Hi @gysagsohn,

Thanks for your questions. At CGA, all classes are taught in real time which allows you to interact with your teachers and classmates just as you would do in a traditional classroom. You will have a regular timetable of live classes to attend, just as you would at a physical school. In terms of meeting with your classmates in person, opportunity for involvement will exist via the co-curricular program of the school. Additionally, class lessons completed via the web will involve considerable interaction with other students. Active participation in lessons will be a key ingredient to student success and enjoyment. This will be passionately fostered by CGA staff. Crimson Global Academy will also work to support you in completing the Duke of Edinburgh award.

Yes, all of our teachers are currently based in New Zealand. Crimson Global Academy has some of the nation’s top teachers, with an average of over 20 years’ teaching experience each. In terms of the benefits of CGA over a regular high school, in many respects online schooling removes much of the inefficiency and rigidity that is common in traditional brick-and-mortar schools. No time wasted in the physical coordination of large groups, no paper-based administration, no limitations on following a student’s progress in a big class, no passive learning, no school uniform and no one-size-fits-all approach.

At CGA, you can’t hide in the back row. Every student is seen and heard, and no one is left behind. Learning time is precious, and learning analytics help CGA keep track of a student’s cognitive and behavioural development. The same discipline that exists at a brick-and-mortar school is valued online, and your academic support team will help you stay on track every step of the way.
