Begin Your Journey Here

At Crimson Global Academy, we believe that education is not a one-size-fits-all approach. That's why we take pride in offering a highly personalised admissions process that sets the foundation for your child's successful online education experience.

Our commitment begins with a 30-minute discovery call with an experienced Admissions Officer, who will guide you throughout the admissions process and help you evaluate which learning pathway, subjects and programmes are best suited to your goals.

Your Journey Begins Here

Our Admissions Process

Enrolment to CGA is competitive as we aim to maximise personalised learning and student success through small class sizes. There are four steps to joining CGA with the whole process typically taking 2-3 days.

Step 1: Book a Call with an Admissions Officer

During this call, an Admissions Officer will explore your child's academic interests, scheduling needs and suitability for online schooling. The session can be conducted either via Zoom or a phone call and typically lasts for 15-30 minutes. We recommend that both students and parents participate in the call to ensure that all your questions are answered.


Step 2: Complete Admissions Assessment

Students complete a brief online academic assessment in subjects such as mathematics, reading, and science. This, coupled with a recent school report (if available), helps us to suggest the most suitable classes for your child.

Step 3: Pathway Strategy and Enrolment

Your Admissions Officer will let you know the classes, timetable options and pricing for your child’s CGA enrolment. Once confirmed, the forms will be sent to get your child ready to join CGA.

Step 4: Student Onboarding

Final enrolment forms are submitted, paperwork is finalised and accounts are set up. We are now ready to welcome you to CGA!

Enrolment Criteria

We're thrilled that you're considering joining our online school community. To ensure that our educational environment remains enriching and supportive for all, we have established a set of thoughtful enrolment criteria. These criteria are designed not just to select students, but to match each student's readiness and potential with the opportunities that CGA provides. Our Admissions Team takes a holistic view of each student and focuses on their willingness and motivation to improve. Students who display genuine enthusiasm about learning are likely to be a good fit for CGA's online programmes and community.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. Students can enrol from around the world and schedule courses to allow for a diverse, global student class and instructor team.

What is the appropriate age to start each course?

Crimson Global Academy recognises that a students’ academic ability may not align with the year level they are placed into at a traditional school, and our grouping of students according to competency is reflective of this. Therefore, we are flexible about the age that a student starts each course. However, for ease of converting your current schooling Year to the US/UK equivalent, please refer to the table below.

Faq Table

What sort of equipment is required, including the minimum specification required of a PC?

A list of hardware requirements will be provided to each student upon enrolment. As a general rule, a laptop that is less than 3 years old should be fine for CGA school. Students may opt to purchase additional gear, such as headsets, electronic pen, and webcams to enrich their online experience.

A minimum internet connection speed of 800kpbs (up/down) is required. To share and view 1080p HD video quality, we recommend 2.0Mbps (up/down).

Are there any prerequisites for entry into each subject level?

Yes. Although we prize flexibility and individual pathways, there are prerequisites for some subjects – please contact our Enrolment Team for more information.

How do I apply for a place at CGA?

Start your application by visiting the Apply page under the Admissions Menu.

Do I need to take an entry test?

CGA will carefully assess a student’s likelihood of being successful in any course of proposed study. CGA will use information provided by the student (school report, competition results for example) and an interview to determine the appropriate placement. An entry test in some circumstances might be required, especially for younger students.
