About Crimson Global Academy


Crimson Global Academy is a world-class, registered online high school that allows students to learn without limits.

Our school is built for engagement and challenges students with the International GCSE and A-Levels: a rigorous, reputable and internationally recognised curriculum.

Our qualified teachers have an average of 20+ years of experience and deliver live online classes in real-time. Students learn at a time and pace that suits them, regardless of age, location, or commitments. 


CGA’s curriculum is based upon the British School Curriculum, involving International GCSE and International A-Level exams, awarded by the UK's largest awarding organisation - Pearson Edexcel. This curriculum is followed by the most prestigious Secondary Schools across the world, including: Eton College, Harrow School, Brighton College and more.  

Through our flexible class scheduleling, one-to-one support, latest technology and a wide variety of examination and testing options, students will embark on an educational journey which fully caters to their individual needs and drives them to achieve their full potential.

Students have access to study spaces, meeting rooms, science laboratories, social activities (such as theatre, dance, and sports) and examination centres. This is provided through a combination of Crimson Education owned facilities and partnerships with schools and institutions around New Zealand and the world.

Reimagining education for the future ​ “It is a real pleasure to welcome students and their families to the Crimson Global Academy (CGA), the first private online secondary school to be set up in New Zealand, designed to cater for students from New Zealand and around the World. Schools are often portrayed as being resistant to change and incapable of organising themselves in different ways, but we increasingly observe radical changes in other industries due to advances in information technology, in post-industrial economies and through globalisation. It is obvious that schooling as we know it need not remain trapped in one stereotyped pattern. CGA offers a unique opportunity for bright young children to develop their shared love of learning in a globally connected school. We give students the flexibility to study at a time and a pace that suits them, individualising their learning and structuring their timetable so their education fits around their lives. CGA will challenge our students with a rigorous, reputable and internationally recognised curriculum and we are leading the way in schooling evolution and reimagining education for the future. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting and innovative school that will provide our students an education of excellence that has been proven to help build the skills of the future.”
