What is Crimson Global Academy?

Crimson Global Academy (CGA) is New Zealand’s first fully-registered private online high school delivering live, real-time teaching to students right in their own home.

Designed to challenge, students graduate with the International GCSE and International A-Level qualifications which are globally recognised for their academic rigour, flexibility, and breadth of learning.

CGA offers a wider range of subjects students may not traditionally have access to. Students can enrol part-time in addition to their standard schooling, or full-time with CGA.

A few words from our Senior Advisor, Rt Hon. Sir John Key

“The future of online education will be huge. Firstly, we now live in the digital world and Covid-19 has taught us that people like the ability to access - and have the need actually to access - information and activities online, and remotely in their own home. For a country like New Zealand that has suffered from the tyranny of distance, online learning is hugely beneficial - both in terms of exporting the talent of our teachers to a global audience, as well as our unique subject matter, particularly in areas like agriculture. It also enables New Zealand students to access the very best teaching from around the world, and empowers them through a personalised approach tailored to the individual.”
