Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Is Online High Schooling harder than traditional local high schooling?

This is a tricky question to answer, however the answer is usually ‘No’. This is not because students are not academically challenged, but rather because Crimson Global Academy can be more accomodating and personalised to the demanding or unusual schedules of our students and families. This often means that our students are able to achieve more, faster.

What does real-time, live teaching mean?

Experienced teachers will teach all classes in real-time. This means you can ask questions, discuss issues and receive feedback. Classes can be interactive with follow-up tutoring and video presentations.

CGA classes are limited to 12 students to ensure engagement and interaction.
