The Galileo Way

A program and schedule designed for each family charted on a flexible 12-month calendar with optional in-person, blended, virtual, and hybrid learning.

Providing students with a foundation of excellence is our goal.
We teach in a personalized way, so our students are able to reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.
Communication is important.

Through our School of Fine Arts, students practice the art of communication in classes such as debate and mock trial or painting, where they learn the confidence to speak clearly and articulate their ideas.

It’s not just about the “now”.

Galileo students participate in internships in an area of career interest to begin building relationships and to strengthen hands-on learning. These real-life experiences help our students launch toward post-secondary success and independence.

Flexibility is key.

The opportunity to learn is available on a 12-month calendar, so families can schedule breaks with flexibility. Additionally, we offer enrichment and "mini-mester" opportunities for credit throughout the year.

Lifelong learning is a lifestyle.

Our students make a lifetime commitment to learn and be successful. Our students receive a fitness tracker upon enrollment and check in with their advisor weekly to ensure their activity is a lifestyle, not a .5 credit requirement.
