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 enroll 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?

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.
