Why choose CGA?
There are many reasons to choose CGA. A brick and mortar school is inherently bound to a physical location and various established structures, while CGA offers flexibility, learning at your own pace, superb teachers, anywhere you are.
CGA prepares students for the real world – a student-centric, problem-based approach to learning using the very best that technology has to offer; and integrating all your studies into a modern, internationally recognised curriculum.
How does an online school compare with brick and mortar schools?
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.
Who is Crimson Global Academy for and are there any restrictions or limitations?
The intended age range for CGA is 13-18, however we believe education should not be based on age but rather that admission and progression should be based on competency and diagnostic testing of student ability. You can expect exceptions to be made for extraordinary achievers.
The school generally serves students who are self-motivated with highly engaged parents and a desire to be a future world leader. As a result, we do not accept students who are not academically motivated and talented relative to their normal school age expectations.
We believe geographical barriers should not limit access to the best learning opportunities. Despite our primary student base being in New Zealand, students can enroll from around the world and schedule courses to allow for a diverse, global student class and instructor team.
Physical study spaces are available in more than 20 countries with more than 30 physical locations across New Zealand, including our HQ in 125 St George’s Bay Road, Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand.
