Founded in September 2017, Canton Global Academy (CGA) is a newly established, non-profit, co-educational international school in Guangzhou, China, which offers the English National Curriculum. 

The school currently has an Early Years Section for children aged three to five, a Primary Section catering for Years 1 to 6 inclusive i.e. five- to 11-year-olds, and Middle School Section for Year 7 to 9 students, i.e. 11- to 14-year-olds. From age 11 upwards, it will eventually offer the Cambridge International Board General Certificate of Secondary Education Examinations (Cambridge International IGCSEs) to year 11 students, i.e .16-year-olds. It is anticipated in future years to be offering Cambridge University Board Advanced Level Examinations. 

CGA is located on Jinshazhou Island in the Baiyun District. The school campus is extensive with ample, fitted-out classroom space which currently includes a music and dance facility, and at the time of writing there is work in progress on a library and information centre, a football pitch, basketball court and playing area, laboratory facilities and art room. These are currently being completed in good time for the new academic year.

All the teaching staff are native English speakers and are fully qualified and experienced, the majority having worked in schools offering the English National Curriculum either in the UK or in international schools throughout the world. 

Canton Global Academy is a member of the Canadian International Educational Organisation (CIEO).


The school curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum. Currently education is offered for students in Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2, and Secondary Education.
