As the author of USA Today's Bestseller "ACCEPTED! Secrets to Gaining Admission to the World's Top Universities", hear Jamie’s impressive background and how his unwavering dedication to education made CGA’s online high school come to life.

From New Zealand to Global Recognition

Jamie's educational journey began in Auckland, New Zealand, but his ambitions knew no bounds. Acceptance letters from Ivy League institutions – Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and Cambridge – paved the way for his academic journey. Jamie chose Harvard for his undergraduate studies, graduating Magna Cum Laude and completing a four-year degree in just three years, showcasing his unwavering dedication.

At the age of 19, Jamie Beaton made history as the youngest-ever Data Analyst at Tiger Management, working closely with legendary investor Julian Robertson. His early achievements hinted at the pioneering role he would play in the education technology sector.

Masters and Scholarships: A Global Journey

Jamie's quest for knowledge led him to Stanford's Graduate School of Business, where he pursued an MBA in Education Technology, earning the prestigious Arjay Miller Award. Simultaneously, he received a Rhodes Scholarship to the University of Oxford, where he completed a DPhil in Public Policy.

His pursuit of education continued with admission to both Harvard and Yale Law Schools, ultimately choosing Yale for his Juris Doctor (JD). Concurrently, he pursued a Master's in Education Entrepreneurship at the University of Pennsylvania, adding a Masters in Global Affairs as a Schwarzman Scholar from Tsinghua University to his impressive resume.
