Introducing Crimson Global Academy!

OCT 07, 2020 • 8 min read

Crimson Education has been fortunate to work with top students since 2013. We’re constantly in awe of the passion and intellectual curiosity that drives our students. We often see and hear that top high school students are constrained by limited options when it comes to academic instruction. We hear from many of you that you are looking for further opportunities to accelerate your college-level learning with the very best teachers! Accordingly, we’re thrilled to announce the expansion of Crimson Global Academy to North America with weekend APs.

Our Curriculum

At CGA, we believe in a learning approach based on competency and maturity, not age. This

means students are free to unlock their full potential in studying advanced coursework. In fact, over 40% of current CGA students are studying at an accelerated level. We are offering AP courses and A-Levels for students looking to level up and extend their education outside of the traditional classroom.

AP subjects allow you to complete comprehensive, college-level papers in high school and differentiate yourself from your peers.

Our student

Our CGA students are currently studying from Australia, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, UAE, UK, Ukraine, the United States… and counting!

Our students often:

  • Have strong academic potential and want to study at a higher level at a quicker rate
  • Want to learn from the best teachers in their subject
  • Are looking for a flexible schedule to maximize their time
  • Enjoy the extra accountability in studying for an extra AP

We’ve worked with students from a variety of backgrounds from actors to homeschooled students to athletes to students just trying to get ahead!

Subjects we offer

The AP Computer Science Principles course complements AP Computer Science A and focuses on the broader aspects of computing. Learn more.*

*AP Computer Science A: Get familiar with the concepts and tools of computer science as you learn a subset of the Java programming language. You'll do hands-on work to design, write, and test computer programs that solve problems or accomplish tasks. Learn more.*

Small, part-time, intensive weekend courses

Our classes take place on the weekends and are limited to no more than 10 students. They’re designed for driven students that wish to study extra subjects in addition to their regular high school workload.

Classes take place in three-hour sessions (with breaks), once per week. Students will target the May 2021 exam session.

Our 2020 AP classes begin on Saturday, November 7th, and Sunday, November 8th. Please see the time options here:
