A different kind of school that believes students simply need space to grow.

Galileo Preparatory Academy offers schooling for middle and high school students, utilizing premium digital resources and career-focused certification processes. Not all students learn the same way or on the same schedule. So we created an entirely new kind of curriculum based on a more flexible calendar for families with a more fluid lifestyle. It’s a school that focuses on four areas of development and always puts the student at the center of the universe.

Our purpose-driven curriculum
consists of four pillars:

Traditional studies in English, mathematics, history, and the sciences.
In-depth study in graphic arts and design, IT, gaming, and business leadership.
Growing skills in problem-solving, communication, and self-expression through exploration of the arts.


Developing interests and skills that improve the common good.

The Galileo Way

A tech-forward curriculum charted on an elastic 12-month calendar with optional in-person and virtual-format 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.
We believe that, by teaching proper communication skills, our students are able to adapt and succeed throughout their lives.
It’s not just about the “now.”
Providing real-life experiences for our students helps launch them toward post-secondary success and independence.
Flexibility is key.
Our school provides a continuous, 12-month availability, so students are able to learn on their own time, and see new content on a recurring schedule.
